Incompletes may get policy change

By Ed De La Garza

The Undergraduate Council will review proposed changes to UH's incomplete grading policy during a meeting scheduled for 3 p.m. today in
Room 220, Ezekiel Cullen. The meeting is open to the public.

The current policy states an incomplete grade will automatically be changed to an F if the class is not completed within a year of the date given
to a student by the class' instructor.

A proposal, prompted by Undergraduate Council Chairman Ross Lence, states that, should the course not be completed, the incomplete
grade would be changed to indicate the student withdrew from the class.

"I asked the council and first the Academic Policies and Procedures Committee to examine the whole grading structure at the University,"
Lence said. It had been 25 years since it was last reviewed.

The proposal states that, since a student must be passing the course before consideration is given to receive an incomplete grade, the
change "will more accurately reflect the actual performance of the student in the course."

The council is expected to act on the proposal today, Lence said. It will then be given to any other departments which could be affected before
being sent to Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost Edward P. Sheridan for approval.
