Frequently Asked Questions about Grades

How Do I Change My Grade?
A change of grade is initiated only by the course instructor. The Change of Grade form is submitted by the course instructor to the area Dean’s Office then to the Provost Office for approval. When approved, the form is sent to the Registrar’s Office where the change occurs. Change of Grade forms cannot be released to students.

What Is an Incomplete Grade?
An incomplete grade is a temporary symbol given at the discretion of the instructor for work not completed due to serious interruption not caused by the student’s own negligence. To change an incomplete grade, a Change of Grade form is submitted by the course instructor to the area Dean’s Office for approval. When approved, the form is sent to the Registrar’s Office where it is processed.

How Long Do I Have to Change an Incomplete Grade?
An incomplete must be made up as quickly as possible, but no later than one semester. Otherwise, it will automatically default to the grade of “F”. There is no extension for the one semester deadline. Do not re-register again for the course to make up the incomplete.

Students who have filed for graduation may not receive an “I” during the term in which they plan to graduate. If a grade of “I” is received, the student must reapply for graduation at the next scheduled application period.
