Grading System

Fall Semester 2015-16


Classes that end prior to the semester closing date may have their final grades submitted beginning the last day of the class.  Grades are to be entered through the Faculty & Advising Center (see detailed instructions below).  The grade deadline remains the same. All fall semester grades must be submitted by Wednesday, December 16, 2015, at noon.

Important notes regarding your grades:

  1. Once you enter the grades and click submit they are recorded on the students' records and are available to the student within 24 hours.
  2. If you click submit and have not recorded a grade for a student you may enter a grade for that student through the Faculty & Advising Center until the final grade deadline for the semester.  The grade deadline for fall semester is Wednesday, December 16, 2015, at noon.
  3. After a grade has been submitted, if you need to make a change due to an error in calculation, a Special Grade Report form must be submitted to the Office of the University Registrar.
It is important to submit grades as soon as possible, but you do have until the grade deadline, Wednesday, December 16, 2015, at noon, to submit all of your fall semester grades.
