Late Course Drops & Incomplete Appeals

Late Course Drops

  • A Late Drop requires College approval.
  • This form requires the student to submit a personal statement explaining the circumstances for this request. Additional documentation is also recommended.
  • Poor performance in a course is NOT a justifiable reason for a Drop.
  • Gies Business students may apply for one late drop in which extenuating circumstances are not required. A personal statement is still required to explain this selection.
  • You may want to consider grade replacement instead of a late drop. Please review the grade replacement policy and consult with your academic advisor.
  • Student Code policy available here.
  • DEADLINE: Due before or on Reading Day of the semester you completed the course.

Incomplete Appeals

  • An Incomplete requires BOTH instructor approval and College approval (we will reach out to your instructor after you complete this form OR you may attach evidence of instructor approval below).
  • This form requires the student to submit a personal statement explaining the circumstances for this request.
  • Approved incomplete coursework must be completed by the end of the 8th week of the following semester (for example, fall incompletes must be resolved by week 8 of the following spring).
  • If incomplete is not changed by instructor by the 8th week an "F" will automatically be assigned for this course.
  • This option is not available if you have completed the final exam.
  • Student code policy available here.
