Grades of Incomplete


Return to: Grading 

Walden strongly discourages grades of I (Incomplete). However, Walden understands that there are certain circumstances under which a grade of I (Incomplete) is appropriate.

Grades of I (Incomplete) are given at the discretion of the course instructor. Normally, they are granted only if students have already met the minimum criteria for active weekly participation in a course (including weekly postings in online courses) and have acceptably completed approximately 80 percent of the rest of the coursework, including discussions and assignments, prior to the last day of classes.

Students must request a grade of I (Incomplete) prior to the last day of classes. The request should list missing assignments and say when students plan to turn them in, no later than 60 calendar days from the last day of classes. Discussion assignments may not be made up after the last day of classes. Coursework submitted within the allowed time period, not to exceed 60 calendar days from the last day of classes, will be graded and included in computation of an overall course grade that will replace the I grade. Failure to complete the specified coursework within the allowed time will cause the grade of I to default to an F (Fail) or U (Unsatisfactory), depending on the course grading scheme.
