This grade must be initiated by the student and approved by the instructor prior to the end of the session in which the class is offered and must be assigned by the instructor prior to the final grading deadline for the term/session in which the class is offered. This grade may be assigned only when a documented circumstance beyond the control of the student arises. The performance in the course must merit this exception, otherwise, the instructor must assign a grade that reflects both the quality of the work completed and the significance of the work/exam that has not been completed. This grade will not be assigned after the session in which the class is offered has ended. Submission of this grade requires a last date of attendance.
