Incomplete Grades (Extensions)

An Incomplete grade of “I” is posted to your course as soon as your extension is approved. An "I" is not a final grade, and no “I” grade may stay on a student record permanently. Your professor will change the "I" to a final grade when your extension ends.

Your professor is not obligated to grade the course as soon as you submit your work but has until 8 days after the official course extension end date.

Please note:

  • If you do not complete work on extension, your final grade will be posted and calculated based on both the work submitted as well as the work that is not completed.
  • If your final grade is not posted within 8 days after the extension end date, please utilize the “Help” Button within your classroom so that the issue can be addressed appropriately.
  • If you have 2 or more current "I" grades on record, you will be prohibited  from registering online for any additional courses until your final grades have been posted and you only have one “I” grade on your record.
  • Your Federal Student Aid eligibility may be impacted if you have courses with "I" grades.
