Back when I was a graduate student I taught at a community college that did this. They had no D grade. They also didn't have an F. The grades they had were A, B, C and I. There reasoning (if you could call it that) was that most of the students were adults who were also working jobs and taking care of their families and other responisbilities like that. Those students might not have time to study and so they shouldn't be burdened with a low grade, hence the Incompletes. However they did have two types of Incomplete grades; Completable Incompletes (that might be turned into another grade if the students finish their work) and Incompletable Incompletes (that will just stay an incomplete).
