Resolution of I Grade

A student who has a grade of Incomplete is required to make arrangements with the instructor to complete the course requirements within 5 weeks following the term in which the Incomplete was given.  The student and instructor of record will be informed by the Registrar of the actual deadline date.  A student receiving an Incomplete in the Spring Term is advised to remain in the Boston area until the Incomplete is resolved.

If the grade of Incomplete is not removed within this 5 week period, the grade will automatically become a grade of “F”.  If extenuating circumstances arise, the instructor of record may request an extension by contacting the Registrar before the deadline has passed.

Following the resolution of an Incomplete, the new course grade will be used in calculating the term and cumulative GPA.  This may result in the student being placed on academic warning or probation for the term or in the student being eligible for dismissal.
