Incomplete Contract Form Info:



1. Title 5 defines the “I” as “Incomplete academic work for unforeseeable, emergency and justifiable reasons at the end of the term” such as illness or death in family. The “I” should not be used for reasons such as “student did not take the final” or “student could not complete the work”. Appropriate reasons for the “I” include “death in family “ or “student illness the date of the final”.  

2. When assigning a grade, please keep in mind that the grade should be based only on the work the student has completed to date. If you do not assign a grade the default will be “F”.  

3. After completion of the course work, submit a Grade Change Request Form to the Admissions and Records Office.  


1. If you do not complete the work below, your grade will become what the instructor has indicated. If the instructor does not indicate a grade, an “F” grade will be posted to your record.  

2. The deadline for completion is the end of one year or an earlier date specified by the instructor.  

3. You may not re-enroll in this course.
