Registrar shares final exam and grade information

On Friday, Ohio University Registrar Debra Benton sent an e-mail to all faculty and staff regarding the submission of grades and final exams.

Dates to remember:

  • Thursday, June 2 - Online Grading System available

  • Saturday, June 4 - Last day of classes

  • Monday,  June 6 - Friday, June 10 - Examination period

  • Saturday, June 1 - Quarter closing date

  • Wednesday, June 15 at noon - Deadline for final grades

Please submit final grades by noon on Wednesday, June 15. Final grades must be submitted through the Online Grading System. The system is accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week (except for a brief period of time early Sunday mornings at approximately 3 a.m.) starting Thursday, June 2. To access the Online Grading System visit and select Online Grading under Online Services for Faculty and Staff. On that site, you will find tutorials and other information about the Online Grading System. If you have any questions about the system or would like training, please contact or 740-593-4199.

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 prerequisite, 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. 

Best regards,

Debra Benton
University Registrar
