Incomplete Policy Language

Update the Incomplete Policy language (see: G-30-12 Grades) to create flexibility for non-standard courses
(e.g. Aviation Flight Labs) to assign incomplete grades and adhere to the policy. In some courses, a student
may not have completed "approximately 75% of the course requirements," but may still have a reasonable
expectation to successfully complete. The change to the policy language will remove the 75% measurement.
Additionally, approximately 5% of courses that have an incomplete grade attached to them were taught by
individuals who are no longer employed by the college. Without an incomplete contract on file, students who
still have an incomplete grade from these courses may not receive an appropriate or accurate final grade.

ANTICIPATED IMPLEMENTATION TIMELINE
N/A
N/A
Establishing an incomplete contract has been expected, but not necessarily enforced. This
will elevate the contract and make it a required component when assigning an incomplete.
This may increase upfront work for Instructional Deans, but will prevent work on the back
end if/when students challenge incompletes, an instructor leaves with outstanding
incomplete grades, etc.
Clarity of remaining requirements, expected outcome, and deadline for student.
Documentation to support incomplete agreement and current (or anticipated) grade if an
instructor is no longer available (leaves institution, long-term disability, etc.).
100% of students who receive an incomplete grade should have a contract on file that
allows an Instructional Dean or proxy to provide an appropriate final grade.
Affected departments: Instructional Deans
Process adjustments: currently, there is not policy language that requires an instructor complete and
document an incomplete contract with the student. Instructors may need to adjust their incomplete agreement
process and include the contract as a part of it. Instructional Deans will have an increased role as the
clearinghouse for Incomplete Contracts.
General Policy (G-30-12 Grades) will need to be updated.
Catalog ("Academic Information" section, page 22) will need to be updated.
Web (see below; should consider including form on faculty resources page?):

Anticipated implementation date: fall 2019 (align w/ catalog and policy manual updates); new form could be
introduced online earlier, if appropriate.
