Incomplete Grades

University Policy on Incomplete Grades

Boise State’s Office of the Registrar has two requirements for an I grade. First, a student must be in good standing in the class. Second, extenuating circumstances prevent the student from finishing work of the course before the semester’s end.

Incomplete Grades in First-Year Writing

First-year writing classes are smaller than many lower-division courses, require regular attendance, and rely on drafting and revision. As a result, incomplete grades are extremely rare in first-year writing courses.

In order to receive an I grade, students must visit with their instructor to see whether an Incomplete grade is possible or appropriate. The instructor will receive approval from FYWP administrators and submit a timeline (maximum of one year) and work expectations for the student to a) complete assignments and b) receive a grade.
