Student Signature/Date Instructor Signature/Date
Program Director/Date*
Program Director signature only needed for an extension of an incomplete grade. Signature indicates approval.
If the Program Director is the course instructor, then the Department Chairperson’s signature is required.
If a final grade is not submitted by the deadline, AND there is no petition on file in the Registrar’s
Office approving an extension of an incomplete grade deadline, THEN the grade of “F” will be
assigned by the Registrar’s Office. Deadlines are listed on the Registrar Academic Calendar.
All course requirements must be successfully met, including resolution of “I” grades, in order to
participate in commencement exercises.
The instructor will distribute the copies of this form as indicated below.
An extension of an incomplete grade should only be allowed for extremely serious
circumstances. The work must be completed and a grade must be reported no later than the end
of the semester following the issuance of the original "I" grade (i.e. an extension of an "I" grade
issued in the Fall semester would be due by the end of the Spring semester). Granting of an
extension is at the discretion of the Instructor and Program Director.
