Requesting Extensions or Incompletes

An “IP” grade may be assigned by an instructor if a student has made satisfactory progress in a course and lacks only a major quiz, final exam, or other project. The “IP” grade may also be assigned due to extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control.

In general, an incomplete may not be considered unless you have completed the majority of the coursework. If you feel that you have justification for requesting an “IP”, you must ask your instructor to assign an “IP” and be prepared to provide documentation to justify your request. Only the instructor may grant an “IP“, and you must coordinate with your instructor to identify a reasonable schedule for submitting the required coursework. You should arrange to complete the course requirements as soon as possible. If only an exam is missing, the deadline may be just a few days; if several assignments are missing, it may be a few weeks. However, in no case will the deadline exceed 110 days after the scheduled end of the course.

You are responsible for adhering to the prescribed schedule for submitting your work. The instructor should not have to beg you to turn it in or remind you of your commitment. If at the end of 110 days you have not completed the remaining coursework as required by the instructor, the “IP” will be converted to an “FI” and appear as an “F” on your official transcript.

Grade Appeal Process

Students who believe that a computational error occurred in grading should immediately contact the instructor of the course in question. Students must bring this matter to the attention of the instructor involved no later than 180 days after the end of the course in order for a grade change to be considered. Administrative personnel of Central Texas College are not authorized to change an instructor’s grade.
