For courses taken for one credit, assignments must be submitted two weeks after the final class meeting. For courses taken for two or three credits, assignments must be submitted four weeks after the final class meeting.
Grading & Incomplete Requests
For courses taken for credit grades are defined as follows:
||Below minimum for good academic standing
||Incomplete: Work not submitted by “Grades Due” date (see below for Bank Street’s Incomplete policy.)
||Enrolled: Grades for the course have not been submitted.
Please note: Graduate School and CPS grades are entered and mailed separately. If you took a Graduate School course, you will receive another grade report when those grades are entered.
For workshops and courses taken for non-credit:
- AT: Student attended non-credit-bearing workshop
- NT: Student did not attend non-credit-bearing workshop Z Grade not submitted by instructor (This is a temporary indicator only. It is replaced by an actual grade when grades are submitted.)
A request for an Incomplete
Students are expected to complete the work for credit-bearing courses two weeks from the end of the course for one-credit courses and four weeks from the end of the course for 2- or 3-credit courses. If a student is unable to finish assignments by the due date, the student must request a grade of Incomplete (IN). Failure to request an incomplete may result in a failing grade (NP). Incomplete grades are granted at the discretion of the instructor. If a grade of Incomplete is granted, the student and instructor must agree on a final due date for submission of the outstanding work. To receive credit for the course, the student must complete all requirements by the date set. Extensions are limited to:
- Fall courses: June 1st of the following year
- Spring courses: January 1st of the following year
- Summer courses: January 1st of the following year
If work is not postmarked by these due dates, the Incomplete is changed to No Credit (NC).
- In exceptional circumstances, non-matriculated students may petition the CPS Review Committee for additional time to make up incomplete work. The CPS Committee will notify the student in writing of approval or denial of their request. Upon approval, students are required to pay $25 processing fee. In some instances, the student may be required, in addition to making up the assignment, to repeat the class work, in which case there may be additional fees.
- In exceptional circumstances, matriculated students may petition the Committee on Academic Standing for additional time to make up incomplete work. The Committee, in consultation with the specific course instructor, will decide whether any additional time, not to exceed the subsequent semester, will be granted.
- Students should note that excessive incomplete grades may interfere with satisfactory progress toward their degree and jeopardize their academic standing (see Satisfactory Academic Progress towards your Degree in the Graduate School Catalog).
