According to the NTU catalog, “an “I” may be issued when unforeseeable circumstances beyond the student’s control prevent the student from completing course requirements. Incomplete grades will not be authorized when the student has failed to complete course requirements or has earned a failing grade due to personal negligence. An incomplete grade must be converted to a credit grade by satisfactorily completing the required assignments within the adjusted deadline (arranged between the instructor and student) of the following semester. A student does not have to reregister for the course if completed within the stated deadline. The Incomplete grade must be converted by the next semester otherwise the “I” will automatically convert to an “F”. The instructor must complete and submit an Incomplete Form to the Registrar’s office.”
Spring Intersession, Summer Semester and Summer Intersession
NTU will start spring, summer, and winter intersession courses this year. Intersession courses help students who have one class to graduate or want to get one course out of the way. Students can take only one course or a maximum of four (4) credit hours during each intersession. Class meeting times for a three-credit hour course for a face-to-face class during the intersession will be 15 hours per week for three weeks.
