Incomplete grades are assigned in required credential courses only if these guidelines are met:
- Incomplete grades are rarely given in credential courses and then only under extraordinary circumstances.
- The decision to assign an incomplete grade is made at the discretion of the instructor.
- Incomplete grades are given only in extraordinary circumstances (e.g. illness or very serious personal reasons) beyond the student’s control, and only under the following circumstances:
a. When a limited amount, normally less than 25%, of the student’s work is incomplete;
b. When the student is otherwise earning a passing grade;
c. When attendance has been satisfactory through the term;
d. When required work may be reasonably completed in an agreed upon time frame of less than one additional semester.
- In credential courses, the outstanding work for an incomplete course must be completed before the beginning of the next academic semester in order to complete any prerequisites for subsequence courses in the professional sequence. [This policy can and does supersede the University policy on incomplete grades, as stated in the University Catalog.]
