Students with incomplete coursework 


Granite State College

Students have 3 weeks after a course end-date to complete their coursework before the course becomes read-only/inactive in Canvas. Student's with an incomplete will be automatically included in a Registrar's office list and have their Canvas course extended to the completion deadline. There is no action needed on the part of an instructor.
 

Plymouth State University

Students retain access to their courses through the end of the following semester before the course becomes read-only/inactive in Canvas. For example, students with a course incomplete from a Fall semester will retain access to completing course work through the end of the Spring semester. Instructors do not need to take any actions to extend course access. 
 

University of New Hampshire

Students have 4 weeks after a course end-date to complete their coursework before the course becomes read-only/inactive in Canvas.

If a student, received an incomplete grade and needs more than 4 weeks to complete all their outstanding work, faculty should complete the Canvas web support form here: Canvas webform to request the course remain active for the student(s) who are still completing work.  This will allow the course to be read-only/inactive for all students who have completed the course while allowing full access and functionality for you and students still working on the course material.

Note:  Please include the course name, course number, and student name(s) in the Additional Details window on the support form.
