Assignment of "I" and "X" Grades
A grade of "I" (Incomplete) may be assigned when, due to unusual circumstances, a student who has maintained an average of "D" or better is unable to complete a small but significant part of the coursework. In order to receive an "I," the student must contact the instructor prior to the end of the semester and request an "I," providing sound reason as to the necessity. At this time, a form is filled out indicating what the student must do to complete the course and how the completed work will be figured into the final grade. The form is signed by the student, instructor and department head and kept on file in the departmental office.
A grade of "X" may be assigned when, through unusual circumstances, a student must miss the final exam of a course. It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor prior to the examination, provide sound reason for missing the final, and request the grade of "X." The instructor must fill out a form and attach the final exam to it. This is kept on file in the departmental office.
