the way I understand it the best / possibly only way to get an "I" grade is to request one from the professor. That way you can also discuss what you will need to do to change that grade to an actual letter grade with the professor.
Also a VERY generous professor might give you an "I" if you were to happen to miss the final due to some emergency.
hopefully that helps a little?
