2015-2016 Catalog

Incompletes

The grade of “I” (Incomplete) may be given after the mid-point of the course when unexpected circumstances, such as illness or military service, make it impossible for a student who is passing the course with a “C” or better to complete the remaining work by the end of the semester. The purpose of an Incomplete, therefore, is not to repeat the entire course but to complete no more than 50% of the work.

  • It is the student’s responsibility to initiate this process, but an Incomplete is assigned solely at the instructor’s discretion.
  • Student must be passing the course with a “C” or better at the mid-point of the course.
  • Incomplete coursework must be completed by the end of the following semester. Instructor can renew an Incomplete for an additional semester at his/her discretion. The student, however, must initiate the request for an extension before the deadline.
  • If the work is not satisfactorily completed by the designated deadline, the “I” will revert to the grade of “F.”
  • Incompletes must be completed with the instructor who issued the original grade.

With the following exceptions: If the instructor no longer teaches at WWCC, the division chair shall assign an instructor from the department area, from which the course was offered, to complete the incomplete process.
