From staff reports
On Thursday, Ohio University Registrar Debra Benton sent an email to all faculty and staff about final grades and final examinations for fall quarter.
Dear Faculty and Staff,
Dates to remember:
Monday, Nov. 14 - Grading System available through the Faculty and Advising Center
Monday, Nov. 14 - Last day of classes
Tuesday, Nov. 15 - Reading Day
Wednesday, Nov. 16-Tuesday, Nov. 22 - Examination period
Wednesday, Nov. 23 - Quarter closing date
Tuesday, Nov. 29 at noon - Deadline for final grades
Please submit final grades by noon on Nov. 29. Final grades must be submitted through the Faculty and Advising Center. The system is accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week starting Nov. 14. Occasional planned outages may occur during the normal outage windows of Saturday, 3 a.m. - 9 a.m. and Wednesday, 12:01 a.m. - 6 a.m. To submit grades, visit www.ohio.edu/registrar and select Faculty and Advising Center. Once you have signed in with your OHIO (OAK) ID and password, select Teaching: Class List/Grading. If you have any questions about the system or would like training, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 740-593-4199. Instructions are available online at www.ohio.edu/registrar/onlinegrading.cfm.
All grades must be submitted by the scheduled deadline, without exception. This includes grades for classes in progress (PR), for incomplete coursework (I), and for students who have never attended (FN failure, never attended) or stopped attending without official withdrawal (FS failure, stopped attending). Submitting grades late or not at all results in undeserved hardships for students. These can include denied degrees, lost job opportunities, delayed transcripts, problems with acceptance to other schools, being dropped from the next term's classes if the course is a requisite, and denials of eligibility for financial aid, athletic participation, and insurance discounts. Grades not submitted by the deadline result in a letter being sent to the department chair/school director.

Multiple Final Examinations:
Students may not be required to sit for more than three final examinations in one day. Should a student be scheduled for more than three examinations in one day, the student may seek relief from the instructor with the examination scheduled latest in the day. This process must be initiated and completed by the beginning of the ninth week of the quarter. The instructor will provide an examination for the student at a mutually agreed upon time during the examination period.
