If a student has encountered serious extenuating circumstances that interfere with his/her ability to complete course requirements, the student may request an incomplete from the faculty member. The student must submit the request, which explains the circumstances, in writing to the faculty member.

To be eligible for an incomplete, the student must discuss the extenuating circumstances with the faculty member before the last day of class, so that the determination to award an incomplete can be made by the time grades are submitted.

For full semester, winter mini and summer classes, the student must complete and submit all work to the instructor within 45 calendar days from the end of the final exam period for the relevant semester. For courses ending before the end of the semester, the deadline is 45 calendar days after the last day of the class.
