Incomplete Agreement Form

Students are strongly encouraged to make the greatest possible effort to finish their courses within the set time frame of each class. Continuing Education’s Incomplete Grade Policy is meant to provide guidance in the event of unforeseen circumstances. It also does not encompass all options available; students should explore all of their options with their academic advisor and/or instructor to determine the best possible solution.

Incomplete Agreements cannot be used for Online Flex courses. All students receive an “I” grade in Online Flex courses after 40 days of enrollment. If students need more than the standard six months to complete an Online Flex class, they should see if they meet the criteria to petition for additional time. Students should talk to their academic advisor if they have questions.

Incomplete Eligibility

In order for a student to be eligible for an “I” grade, they must have satisfactorily completed at least half of the coursework. An incomplete will not be given to a student who did not regularly attend class or who has not completed more than half of the coursework.

Incomplete Form and Process

Instructors are welcome to use Continuing Education’s Incomplete Form at their discretion; however, if the instructor’s department has its own incomplete grade policy and process, we recommend the instructor use those resources first.

If the instructor is unable to work with a student to complete the course as outlined in the policy and form, that instructor’s Department Representative agrees to work with the student to identify other options for satisfying the incomplete.

For questions about the policy and form, instructors should contact their Continuing Education program director.

Once the form is complete and all parties have signed it, the instructor will email a copy to Enrollment Services will then upload the form to OnBase for our records and will notify the student that we have received the completed form.

Now that you’ve selected your favorite Continuing Education courses, email or print the information, including class number, to more easily search Buff Portal and enroll. Still have questions? Contact an advisor.
