A: An Incomplete (I) grade may be assigned when part of the work in a course remains incomplete. It is given only at the student’s request and when there is a reasonable possibility that a passing grade will result from completion of the work. The student and faculty member will mutually set a deadline for completion of the work. The faculty member will file a grade change when the work is completed.
