Registrar's Notes

December 15, 2008

Grades due Tuesday at noon

Fall grades are due tomorrow, Tuesday, Dec. 16 at noon. As always, we will close the grading system shortly after noon to begin processing grades. When this process is complete, students will be able to view their grades through GoWMU. Any instructors who have not entered grades will also be able to do so at this time.

I expect that grades will be available to students in the late afternoon or early evening. We will put a message on GoWMU when they are available.
