Academic Policies & Procedures
A student who misses a final examination and who has had a passing grade up to that time is given a temporary grade of Incomplete if the instructor has reason to believe the absence was beyond the student’s control.
If a student is not in attendance during the last several weeks of a semester, the instructor may report a grade of I (indicating the work is satisfactory at the end of the semester but has not been completed) if the instructor has reason to believe the absence was beyond the student’s control; if not, the instructor shall record a grade of F. A grade of I must be removed within one year of the date of its recording, or it will automatically be changed to an F by the university registrar. A grade of I may be removed if the student completes the work within the time limit or if the dean of the School of Dentistry authorizes the change of the I to W (withdrawal from course). Students may not reenroll in a course in which they have a grade of I.
