A student with a valid reason for not finishing course requirements on schedule may be granted additional time by the instructor to complete the course. The student must have completed at least 50% of the course work and no more than 50% of a student’s courses may be extended at one time. During the extension, the student receives the grade of “I”, denoting an incomplete course. If the course is not completed during the time of the extension, the student will receive the grade of “F.” A request by a distance education student for extensions of one to three months must include the instructor’s approval and be emailed or sent in writing to the office of the Registrar by the last day of the semester. A fee for extensions is required; see fee schedule.
