Incomplete Contracts

Incomplete contracts let you finish course work for a non-academic emergency after the full withdrawal deadline.

How Can I Receive an Incomplete Contract?

To be eligible for an incomplete contract, you must meet the following qualifications:

  • You have a non-academic situation that prevents you from finishing the class on time.
  • You must have been passing and attending class through the full withdrawal deadline.
  • You must be able to finish the coursework with your instructor.
  • You cannot re-register or “sit in” the class to finish the coursework (unless special circumstances require attendance in a portion of a class or lab).
