If I am approved for an Incomplete (I) grade for a course taken in the Spring 2020 semester, will I still have the option to change the grading method to a Pass (P) or withdraw from the course once the final course grade is posted?
In accordance with the Incomplete grading policy, students will have the option to request an (I) grade for a Spring 2020 course if they have completed a majority of the work at a satisfactory level. Students approved for an incomplete grade will be given until the end of the Fall 2020 semester to resolve any remaining coursework. Once a final course grade is submitted, students will have until January 11th 2021 to change the grading method to the Pass (P) option or withdraw from the course.

What are my options if I have an Incomplete (I) grade from a previous semester and was trying to complete it over the Spring 2020 semester?
To ensure timely progress toward a degree, students are encouraged to complete any remaining coursework associated with an incomplete (I) grade. Likewise, course instructors are encouraged to provide flexibility where possible so that remaining coursework can be satisfied. When it is possible to do so, grade changes for outstanding incomplete grades should be submitted by course instructors by the May 27th submission deadline. Once a final course grade is posted to replace the (I) grade, students will have until June 10th to change the grading method to the Pass (P) option or withdraw from the course.

Undergraduate students may request to have their final course grade changed to the (P) option by submitting a request to Student Records. Undergraduate students may submit a request to withdraw from a course by submitting a request to Registration. When submitting a request to the Registrar’s Office, students must include the course number (i.e. PSYC 100) and the term in which they enrolled in the course and received an (I) grade (i.e. Fall 2019).

If a final course grade is not submitted by the May 27th grade submission deadline, an automatic one semester extension of the Incomplete will be granted to the end of Fall 2020. Students will have until the end of the Fall 2020 semester to resolve any remaining coursework. Once a final course grade is submitted by the course instructor, students will have until January 11th, 2021 to change the grading method to the Pass (P) option or withdraw from the course.
