Incomplete Coursework

University Policy

School of Education Policy

To receive a grade of “Incomplete” in the School of Education, students must complete an “Incomplete Grade Contract.” This contract should be filled out by both the student and instructor and should include a description of the work that needs to be completed, the deadline for completion, and the course grade the student should receive if the outstanding work is not completed and submitted. Both student and instructor will need to sign this form and the signed form should be returned to the SED Student Records office, Room 115, or emailed to sedstu@bu.edu, for processing. Incomplete grades should not be awarded without this contract.

Students have at most one year to resolve the terms of the contract or the grade will become the grade earned at the time the “I” grade was issued.

(College of Arts & Sciences policy: If a student fails to complete the required coursework by the deadline date set by the appropriate instructor, or within 12 months from the date the “I” grade was assigned, whichever comes first, the “I” grade is automatically and permanently changed to a grade of “F.”)
