Grading – summer II

Grading is open for this summer II session. As usual, grades are due by noon on Tuesday, August 24. We will close the grading system shortly after noon on the 24th to process all grades and move them to academic history. I expect that grades will be available to students to view around 2:00. At that time the grading system will reopen for faculty. Grades submitted after noon on the 24th will not be available for students to view until the next day.

Textbook/registration integration

For fall 2010 – good progress has been made, please do continue to work to ensure that all sections listed on our schedule do have textbook information so that we can be in full compliance with this regulation as part of the Higher Education Opportunity Act.

For spring 2011 – the online textbook requisition form is open and available for instructors to submit spring textbook materials. Note that all sections need to have this information submitted by the end of September; we will open the spring 2011 schedule for student viewing on Oct. 4.
