Professors have the option to allow a student to take an Incomplete on a class. This means that a professor wishes to give a student more time to complete the necessary assignments after the end of the semester. This is completely under the professor and department’s discretion to issue a student an Incomplete (“I”), and is only used in special circumstances. Once those assignments are completed within the set time frame (within 12 weeks from the date of issue), the professor will assign the student a final grade in the class via a Grade Change Form turned in to One Stop.
How to Take an Incomplete
To take an Incomplete, the student and professor must work together to fill out an Incomplete Form (PDF) and submitting to One Stop.
Things to Know
- All necessary signatures must be acquired before submitting to One Stop for processing.
- The Incomplete Form must list all remaining assignments for the class.
- The automatic deadline to finish the assigned work and receive a final grade is up to 12 weeks from the date of issue. However, the professor can set a shorter deadline if he or she desires.
- If the student does not finish the assigned work in time, they receive a grade designated by the professor on the Incomplete form; if no alternate grade was designated, the student receives an F.
