  • AG: Aegrotat Standing

  • I: Incomplete (granted by the Registrar)
  • IP: In Progress
  • P: Pass
  • W: Withdrawal

Incomplete Grade

A temporary grade of incomplete (“I”) may be granted by the Registrar in cases such as death in the family or medical emergency. Needing more time is not a criterion for an “incomplete.” Once an “incomplete” is granted, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor and make satisfactory arrangements to complete the outstanding work. A student who receives an “I” must complete the work by the extended deadline. A grade of “F” will be recorded for students who do not complete the outstanding work by the deadline.

Aegrotat Standing

Aegrotat standing, a final grade given in a course for which the required examination was not taken, may be granted in exceptional circumstances. The instructor concerned may submit a recommendation to the Academic Standards Committee. Aegrotat standing will be considered on the basis of grades achieved in the course(s) for which it is requested, accumulated Grade Point Average (GPA), successful completion of three-quarters of the semester in which the course(s) are taken, a minimum of 65% (C) in course(s) prior to the emergency that led to the request for aegrotat, consistent attendance and supporting documentation certifying an inability to continue the course(s).
