Incompletes Block Registration Policy

  1. The instructor may assign an incomplete (I) grade if at least 75% of the required coursework has been completed at passing quality and holding the student to previously established time limits would result in substantial unanticipated hardship to the student.
  2. The student must complete all unfinished work by the date set by the instructor.
  3. Left unchanged, an incomplete automatically becomes an F after one year.
  4. If the student is a major in the School of Informatics and Computing and has multiple incompletes (2 or more), the student will be blocked from registering for additional courses until the student has only one (or zero) outstanding incomplete or the student presents the academic advisor or department chair with a plan of action for completing all incompletes in a timely manner.

Working toward the removal of an incomplete does not make the student eligible for financial aid, and failing to register for courses can have financial aid implications.
