NPNo Pass0
IIncomplete (To be completed within one calendar yr.)0

Incomplete Grades

An incomplete grade should be given to a student only if the following conditions exist:

  1. The student has attended more than half of the regularly scheduled class sessions and is making satisfactory progress.
  2. The student is unable to complete the class
  3. The student will be able to complete the work outside of class

If these conditions are not present, the student should be given an “F”. If an instructor does assign an incomplete grade, he/she must submit an Incomplete Grade Form to the Vice President of Academic Affairs and give a copy to the student specifying what requirements need to be completed and the timeframe for completion.

Pass/Fail Elective Courses

Under certain conditions, a class may be graded using the “P” grade (see College Catalog).  The type of evaluation must be determined at the beginning of the class and cannot be changed while the class is in progress.
