An instructor may assign a grade of I (Incomplete) to a student who fails to complete a course due to circumstances beyond his or her control when the work can be made up without retaking the course. In such cases, it is assumed that the student has fulfilled the majority of class obligations and has missed only an examination or major assignment.
The instructor and student will agree upon the work to be completed and the deadline by which it must be done. If the assigned work has not been completed by the end of the following semester, the Incomplete will automatically change to an F. If the instructor who assigned the Incomplete is no longer employed at Normandale, the student should contact the appropriate academic dean, who may then arrange for resolving the grade. The Incomplete grading option is utilized at the discretion of the instructor.
Students are cautioned to utilize the Incomplete option only when absolutely necessary, as a grade of I will count as credits attempted but not completed when calculating a student's percent of completion for satisfactory academic progress.
