  1. Not re-register for the course - You are making up an incomplete in your original course.
  2. Appear in person at the Mathematics Building, Room 244, ask for Rosemarie Marciniak or Catherine Bajer, and ask her to initiate an incomplete petition form for you.
  3. Sign the petition.
  4. a) If your original instructor determined that the work was to be completed with him/her, take the approved petition form to your original instructor for his/her signature. b) If your original instructor determined that the work was to be completed by your repeating the course, take the approved petition form to your new instructor for his/her signature.
  5. Return the petition form to Rosemarie Marciniak in Room 244 Mathematics Building by the last day of drop/add (Friday, January 26).
