Granting an Incomplete Grade
As the instructor of record, you may assign a grade of Incomplete (I) if your student's work in a course has been of passing quality but is incomplete due to circumstances beyond the student's control.
Students who fail to turn in all required work cannot request an I grade unless they have been unable to finish because of circumstances beyond their control. If you do not know why a student has not handed in a final paper or taken a final exam, you should give the student a failing grade rather than an Incomplete. Unless you can attest to the special conditions required for an I grade, you must give a student who has not completed your course an F, NP, or U.
Resolving an Incomplete Grade
Graduate students do not have a specified deadline for the replacement of an I grade. The method of replacement of the I grade by a final grade is determined by the Dean of the Graduate Division and the Graduate Council.

All undergraduates must observe the following deadlines for replacement of an I grade.
|I Grade Received||Deadline for Replacement of I Grade|
