This form is to be initiated by the student. An instructor should not initiate a grade of incomplete, but assign the grade earned by the student at the end of the grading period. If the student experienced extenuating circumstances beyond their control during the semester that prohibited them from completing their coursework on time, they may then use this form to request a grade of incomplete. If approved by the Academic Dean, the instructor will set a date when the coursework must be submitted. If the date is not met, the original grade earned at the end of the grading period is the grade that will be posted to the student's transcript.
