- Grades of Incomplete are given when student has already completed substantial requirements in the course.
- Grades of Incomplete must be completed in one semester after they have been awarded or the grade of Incomplete will revert to a grade of F.
- The course instructor, or in the absence of the instructor, the specialty coordinator, shall supervise the completion of the course work and removal of the incomplete to a course grade.
- If the incomplete is in a course that is a prerequisite for another, the student may not progress until the incomplete is removed.
