Grade Requests

It is the student’s responsibility to initiate a request for an incomplete, reason for requesting an incomplete must be acceptable to the instructor, who establishes specific make-up requirements. REC courses are based on physical activity; if a student is physically unable to participate in class(s) for an extended period of time due to but not limited to illness, emergency, family emergency, accident, hearing, interview a student must provide documentation to the instruction within one week of absence.

Recreation Services requires documentation. Documentation must list dates and coincide with class absences. 

The symbol of incomplete is only appropriate when two basic conditions are met:

  1. The student has substantial equity at a passing level in the course with respect to work completed
  2. The student has been prevented by circumstances beyond his/her control, such as illness or family emergency, from completing all of the course requirements on time.

An incomplete may not be given merely because a student was unable to complete all course requirements on time. Such a practice would be open to abuse.

The student must initiate incomplete process; student should contact instructor asking for incomplete. The instructor will then communicate with Instruction about the incomplete request; an Incomplete Agreement will then be completed if the instructor and Instruction feels as though an Incomplete is warranted.
