Students may be waiting for final grades for Summer II graduation, for financial aid, or for prerequisites for fall courses, so it is important that grades be submitted by the deadline.
However if there is a situation where a student has not completed all the work for the session, and the faculty member is willing to give the student more time, it is appropriate for the faculty member to not submit a grade. Leaving the grade open is best in this situation; the faculty member can submit the grade online when the work is completed, as long as it is within the 30 days.
Once a grade has been submitted, including an incomplete, the faculty member would need to submit a change of grade form, on paper, to make any change in grade submitted online.
A student’s degree can be confirmed to some external (outside of WMU) source without first obtaining the permission of the student so long as the institution identifies “degree” as directory information.

True. WMU may release without written consent, those items designated as directory information on any student not currently enrolled unless that student, at his/her last opportunity as a student requested otherwise. WMU does list “degree” as directory information.
