From staff reports
On Tuesday, Ohio University Registrar Debra Benton sent an email to all faculty and staff about final grades and examinations for fall semester.
Dear Faculty and Staff,
Dates to remember:
Friday, December 7, 2012 - Grading System available through the Faculty and Advising Center
Saturday, December 8, 2012 - Last day of classes
Monday, December 10, 2012 - Friday, December 14, 2012 - Examination period
Saturday, December 15, 2012 - Semester closing date
Wednesday, December 19, 2012, at 12:00 noon - Deadline for final grades
Please submit final grades by 12:00 noon on Wednesday, December 19, 2012. Final grades must be submitted through the Faculty and Advising Center. The system is accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week starting Friday, December 7, 2012. Occasional planned outages may occur during the normal outage windows of Tuesday, 6:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. and Saturday, 12:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
To submit grades, visit www.ohio.edu/registrar
and select Faculty and Advising Center. Once you have signed in with your OHIO ID and password, select Teaching: Class List/Grading. If you have any questions about the system or would like training, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 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:
• "PR" grades for classes in progress,
• "I" grades for incomplete coursework,
• "FN" (failure, never attended) for students who have never attended,
• "FS" (failure, stopped attending) for students who stopped attending without official withdrawal.
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 thirteenth week of the semester. The instructor will provide an
examination for the student at a mutually agreed upon time during the examination period.
