How to Get an Extension on Your Course

If you do not complete course requirements on time because of illness or other extenuating circumstances, you may be given a grade of Incomplete (I) if you have successfully (grade of B or better) completed at least 50% of the course work in the specified course and if you apply for an approved extension. Extensions are 30 days from the final day of the regularly-scheduled course. All work to rectify incomplete grades must be completed within the extension period. You may only have one Incomplete grade and one Extension at a given time. You are advised whenever possible to complete requirements within the time allotted for the course. All incompletes must be resolved before you are permitted to defend the dissertation proposal. Incomplete grades do not count toward graduation.
