Policy on Incompletes
For SEAS Students: To be granted an Incomplete, students must provide official supporting documentation certifying the reasons for the request. Please note that final authorization of all Incompletes requires the approval of both the Committee on Academic Standing and the instructor for the course. Individual faculty members and instructors are NOT authorized to grant Incompletes.Both CC and SEAS students who wish to petition for an Incomplete must do the following:
A) Contact/make an appointment with their class dean to discuss the request. If the circumstances appear to warrant an Incomplete, they will be provided with an application to request an Incomplete. This petition includes a form to be completed by their instructor(s).
B) Request that the instructor(s) complete the instructor form. Instructors will be asked to provide a contingency grade in the event that the student does not finish the assigned work. The completed instructor form must be provided in order for the Incomplete application to be reviewed by the Committee on Academic Standing.
C) Obtain supporting documentation from Health Services or other source(s) appropriate to the reason you are requesting an Incomplete.
D) Submit all completed forms and supporting documentation to CSA for consideration by the Committee on Academic Standing.
For final papers or other course work due at the end of the term: Monday, May 4, 2009
For final exams: No later than a day before the final examination for which students are requesting the incomplete.
Upon receipt of all forms and supporting documentation, the Committee on Academic Standing will meet to review the petition.
Students will be informed of the decision via email. Students who are granted an Incomplete are assigned a deadline for completion of the overdue work, or a date on which a deferred exam must be taken.
The deferred exam dates for Spring 2009 are: Friday, September 11, 2009 and Monday, September 14, 2009
