(Incomplete Academic Work for Unforeseeable and Justifiable Reasons at the End of the Term)
Academic work which is incomplete for unforeseeable emergency and justifiable reasons at the end of the term may result in an “I” symbol being entered in the student’s record. Conditions for removal of the “I” shall be stated by the instructor in a written record which shall contain the conditions for removal of the “I” and the grade assigned in lieu of its removal. This record must be given to the student, with a copy on file with the District Office of Admissions & Records until the “I” is made up or the time limit has passed. A final grade shall be assigned when the work stipulated has been completed and evaluated, or when the time limit for completing the work has passed.
The “I” may be made up no later than one year following the end of the term in which it was assigned. The “I” symbol shall not be used in calculating units attempted, or for grade points. A time extension beyond one year, but not to exceed one semester, may be granted by petition. The student will need to complete the Student Petition for Extension of an Incomplete.
1) Student completes the “Student Information” section of the Student Petition for Extension of an Incomplete form and submits it to the instructor for approval.
2) Upon approval, the instructor must submit the form promptly to the Admissions and Records Office on campus for processing.
