Incompletes and Withdrawals

This course shall follow strictly the University's standard for incompletes: they are only to make up work missed owing to circumstances beyond a student's control, and they are generally given only when a student has enough points to pass the course with already-completed work (i.e., no ``I/F'' grades except in special circumstances with a very short time leash).

An ``Administrative Withdrawal'' after the ``R'' date is available only to students who withdraw from all their courses in a given term. This makes the important privilege of penalty-free withdrawal before the ``R'' date all the more vital to keep in mind. Students in doubt are always welcome to contact me and/or their departmental advisors for help and advice.
