INCOMPLETE GRADE POLICY A student is eligible for a grade of incomplete only when an emergency or other reason beyond his/her control prevents completion of a course near the end of an academic term. Students must meet the following conditions to be considered for an incomplete grade: The student must request in advance a grade of incomplete from the instructor of the course and must make arrangements for completing the coursework with the instructor. At the time of the incomplete request, the student must have successfully completed 75% of the coursework. At the time of the incomplete request, the student must have a passing grade in the course. At the time of the incomplete request, the student must be in compliance with all course requirements as outlined in the course syllabus, including attendance requirements. A student may be required to submit documentation to support the reason the student is not able to complete the coursework. The student and instructor must complete a “Request for Incomplete Grade” form outlining specific work required for course completion and expected date of completion. ASUN enforces a maximum time to complete: by the end of the following 16-week term. However, instructors may require a shorter time period for satisfactory completion of the course. Should this work not be completed within this time frame, the incomplete grade will be changed to an “F” on the student’s transcript. Students unable to complete a course because of military duties (with documentation); extended jury duty (with documentation); or sudden catastrophic disability (substantiated by the disability coordinator) may not be required to meet all of the requirements outlined above. The instructor will notify the Registrar upon successful completion of all coursework and will report the student’s grade. If the student fails to complete the coursework as agreed, the “I” will automatically become an “F”.
