All work for learning activities must be completed according to the following schedule:

Courses-Students must meet deadlines set by course instructors. A student who completes most of the required coursework (as determined by the instructor) but is prevented from completing the course on time may request that the instructor assign an incomplete (an "I" grade). Instructors are not required to give incompletes. All remaining work must be submitted by the instructor's deadline. It is important to note that if the required coursework has not been completed by the end of the following semester, the incomplete will automatically change to either an "F" or an "NC" based on the chosen grading method.

Please note: Grades of "F," "NC," "I," or "W" all negatively impact completion rate, which is used in addition to GPA to determine whether or not a student remains in good academic standing. Procedure #205,, Undergraduate Academic Standing Review, states that "A student is in Good Academic Standing when the student's cumulative GPA is 2.0 or better and cumulative completion rate is 67% or better." See Policy #2050 and Procedure #205 for the complete details of the Academic Standing requirements.
