Incomplete grades provide a mechanism for students who are in good standing but have significant unforeseen circumstances preventing course completion in the normal time-frame. Incomplete grades affect nursing program progression and thus are permitted only in exceptional circumstances. The faculty of record has the right to refuse an incomplete grade and will determine the final plan for successful completion of the grade. Incomplete grades that are not completed by the agreed upon date on the Incomplete Contract Form will default to an E/F or another grade if indicated on the form. Refer to the PLU policy on incomplete grades and course syllabus for more information.
