Grade Extensions For Late & Incomplete Work

Grade Extensions
A professor may permit a grade extension for a student who has not completed the requisite assignments for a course. When a student has petitioned a professor for a grade extension and the professor has agreed, the professor submits a Grade Extension Form electronically.

The following conditions apply to all grade extensions:

• In order for the extension to be official, the student must pay a $30 fee. Grade extension fees may not be charged to a student’s account unless there is a credit balance on the account.
• Students may not apply for a second extension of a course.
• Students who file for grade extensions will receive the grade of “E” until the course is finished. An “E” grade counts as an “F.”

In addition, the following conditions apply to grade extensions granted in traditional undergraduate or graduate courses:

• A completed grade extension form must be received three weeks before the day of the final exam.
• The maximum time allowed for an extension is eight weeks from the last day of the semester. The professor may set an earlier deadline at his or her discretion. At the end of the eight weeks, the student will receive a final grade based on all work submitted at that time.
• Students applying for a grade extension are not eligible for the Dean’s List that semester.
• Students applying for a grade extension are not eligible to graduate that semester.
In addition, the following conditions apply to grade extensions granted in CALL courses:
• A completed grade extension form must be received within one week after the last class meeting.
• The maximum time allowed for an extension is five weeks from the last class meeting. The professor may set an earlier deadline at his or her discretion. At the end of the five weeks, the student will receive a final grade based on all work submitted at that time.
• A student who has applied to graduate cannot be granted an extension in his or her final term unless the deadline for the extension is at least one week before the term’s graduation date.
