Cegeps see course “incompletes” rise, fewer failures

January 20, 2021
The Journal de Montréal reports that an increased number of cegep students are requesting “incompletes” for their classes. During COVID-19, institutions have temporarily waived the need for students to fill out a medical form to apply for incomplete status. The article explains how eight cegeps have seen a dramatic increase in students requesting incompletes for a variety of different reasons, including contracting COVID-19, having a poor internet connection, or experiencing mental health concerns. However, cegeps have also seen far fewer course failures. The article explains that students who have chosen to request an incomplete will have to retake the entire course. Journal de Montréal (QC)
