In Terms 1-5, incomplete grades are given when final course requirements have not been completed due to serious mitigating circumstances. This “I” designation remains on the transcript until a final course grade is given upon the completion of remaining course requirements. Should a student with an “I” fail to take the scheduled Completion Examination, the Sr. Associate Dean of Basic Sciences must approve the reason supporting the extension of the “I” designation. The “I” designation must be resolved prior to registration for the next term. If not resolved, the “I” designation will convert to an “F” designation and the APRC will review the academic status of the student.
In the clinical terms, an Incomplete (“I”) designation is given when additional clinical work/remediation is required to complete the course. The “I” designation remains on the transcript until a final course grade is given upon completion of remaining course requirements. Students should consult the Clinical Training Manual for further details.
NG: No Grade (only for the Clinical years)
A Clerkship Director may report a “No Grade” for a student who is registered in a course. Students must fulfill all course requirements as defined by the Clerkship. Once all requirements have been completed, the NG will convert to a final grade. Failure to complete remaining requirements within the required timeframe as outlined in the CTM will result in an “F” grade for the clerkship.
