Extensions and Incompletes

The final deadline for submitting all coursework is the last day of the semester for your local campus as noted in the Academic Calendar.

In the case of a serious illness, family emergency, or other extenuating circumstances, your instructor may grant an extension. A temporary notation of “I” (incomplete) is assigned until a final grade can be determined. While the possibility exists of an extension as long as four weeks beyond the end of the semester, in most cases faculty grant an extension of one to three weeks, depending on the severity of the situation faced by the student. All course assignments not completed by the extended deadline will be given a failing grade. Under no circumstances may this period be extended except by academic petition and approval of the Administrative Committee.

Please note: If you are receiving financial aid, you must demonstrate satisfactory academic progress in order to remain eligible for financial aid in subsequent semesters. Requesting an extension and receiving an incomplete may jeopardize your financial aid eligibility as well as your registration for the next semester.
