Incomplete Grades for Graduate Program
The grade of “I” will be issued only for those courses in which a student has not completed the necessary requirements for graduate courses (500 and above) because of extenuating circumstances.
Should conditions arise that prohibit the student from completing required course assignments by specified due dates, the student must negotiate with the course professor for a grade of incomplete (“I”). The student must contact the course professor and file an incomplete contract grade form with the professor at least two weeks prior to the date semester grades are due to the registrar. The form is signed by the student and the faculty member and a copy is retained by the student. The course professor has the right to determine the length of time for completion of the course requirements within the maximum time limits allowed. The grade of “I” must be removed within a maximum of one calendar year or the “I” automatically becomes an “F.”
Emergencies may arise which do not allow a two-week notice. In that event, the student must contact the director of the Center for Adult and Continuing Education who will, in turn, inform the course faculty member involved.
A grade of “IP” (In Progress) will only be issued for profession contribution, thesis courses, or clinical education/fieldwork courses. The “IP” must be removed within a maximum of one calendar year or the “IP” automatically becomes an “F.”
Note: A student who will be negotiating a grade of “I” or “IP” must obtain an incomplete contract grade form from the Center for Adult and Continuing Education or online through the e-MU portal.
