An Incomplete, or “I” grade, is defined in the Academic Catalog as a “temporary record of work which was passing when interrupted by unavoidable absence or causes beyond a student’s control.”
A student who receives an “I” grade must achieve a permanent grade in the course no later than the 12th (twelfth) week of the second semester subsequent to the enrollment. If not, the “I” grade will become an “IF”. Please consult the Grades section of Academic Regulations in the Academic Catalog for additional information on the “I” grade process.
Incomplete grades can be given to students under certain circumstances. If you have questions about what circumstances warrant an “I” grade, please contact the Dean of Students Office at (219) 989-4141.
If you are issuing an “I” grade, please complete the Incomplete Grade Form. Submit copies of the form to the Office of the Registrar in Lawshe Hall Room 130 and to the student’s academic department.
In order to change a student’s grade, faculty should follow the directions on the Form 350 (Academic Record Change), which is only available through the Office of the Registrar.
Please contact Roberta Allan in the Office of the Registrar at (219) 989-2157 to request the Form 350 or for issues related to processing grade changes.
