Early "Vanishing" Incomplete Deadline Today - June 5, 2018

If you took an Incomplete in any of your spring 2018 classes and want to have the temporary grade of "I" removed from your transcript, be sure to turn in all remaining written work to both the instructor and (so that it can be time-stamped as on time).  If you meet this deadline, then when the instructor grades your work and turns in the final grade, the "I" will be removed and replaced by the updated letter grade.

If you need a little more time, the final Incomplete deadline is Tuesday, September 4th.  If you turn in your work any time after today and on or before that final deadline, the "I" will remain on your transcript, and it will be joined by the final grade once the instructor turns in the final grade.
