Drexel University students are expected to complete a course during the academic term in which the course was taken. However, a student, for reasons beyond their control may be unable to complete the coursework and thus, may have the opportunity to obtain an INC for the course under specific conditions and guidelines.
The assignment of the grade of Incomplete (INC) is a limited privilege. The decision to honor a student request for an Incomplete grade is at the discretion of the course instructor at the time the INC is requested. The student and the instructor must enter into a contract that delineates the requirements for the student to make up the outstanding course material.
Incomplete grades may not exceed two subsequent quarters; extensions may be granted by the instructor with approval by the Graduate College. If a final grade is not submitted by the date established with the course instructor in the Incomplete Grade Contract, the INC grade will become a failing grade (I/F) on the student's academic record on the last day of classes within the deadline quarter of the designated two subsequent quarter sequence; this grade will be reflected in the student’s GPA and will be considered as the final grade.
