- Please fill out the form again, choosing either the reimbursement option or the expense report option (if you need both for the same trip, please leave a note in the appropriate form field for your travel coordinator). Please follow up with an email to Tresa containing any receipts, quick explanations for expenses, names of other travelers you covered expenses for, etc. You may also drop physical receipts off at Tresa's office, CRB 2008, or send through campus mail.

- Incomplete Form - Here is our IB process for Incomplete grades to help support you and the students:
- Prior to agreeing to an Incomplete for the term grade, verify that student is passing class thus far. Fill out the Incomplete form with the student (Note that you do not need to give them a full year to complete your course, you can pick your own due dates). The general recommendation is totry wrapping up remaining work quickly (e.g. set due dates and exam make-up dates as soon as practically possible), as a year does not usually benefit student learning.
- Email completed form to Lori Kayes and IB@oregonstate.edu.
- The IB Department will store forms in a repository for reference as needed.
- If you do not resolve the Incomplete grade within the year, you will receive a notification from the OSU Registrar at the beginning of the term in which the grades will automatically roll to your default grade.
