Incomplete and Repeat Grades FAQs
What are Incompletes? The 'I' grade is defined under the General University Grading System. You can learn about Incompletes and Repeat Grades here.
How do I request an Incomplete? You can learn about requesting an Incomplete here. Please note that some instructors in the past have granted Incomplete grades without a request. This can happen when there is a disruption in instruction such as when courses moved abruptly to an online format during the 2020 Winter and Spring Quarters.
How long do I have to resolve an Incomplete grade? One year is the maximum time that the university allows for a student to complete an Incomplete. However, there are exceptions to this rule. You can learn more about the timeline of resolving an Incomplete here.
Who can help me decide if an Incomplete is right for me? You can speak directly with your instructor(s) if you feel comfortable doing so. You can also consult your Academic Advising Director about your options and how to communicate with your instructor(s) about their policies around Incomplete grades. You can find your Academic Advising Director here.
