Registrar's Notes


August 23, 2010


Grades for summer II are due tomorrow, Tuesday, by noon. After grades are processed, they will be available for student viewing, probably within a couple of hours.

Please contact the Registrar’s Office with any grading questions, 387-4300.

Keypad codes

As we do at this time each year, keypad codes will be changed this week for Sangren, Kohrman, Moore, McCracken and Dunbar. Building coordinators will be distributing the new codes.


A reminder not to enroll students in a section which has students on a waitlist.

Mid-term reports condensed

The mid-term grade reports have been condensed. There are now eight (8) reports to replace the 40+ that previously existed. These reports now have prompts for the term and, depending on the report, other information.

The new reports are found in the same place on the list, but the package name has changed. It is now MidTerm-Final Grading. The report for attribute groups includes all groups of students who are tracked using attributes (Alpha, MLK, etc.). The report for cohort groups includes all the groups that are tracked using a cohort code (FYE, SSP, etc.).

Midterm grading for fall will open on Sept. 7, with Oct. 4 as the date set for first work grades and Oct. 31 the deadline for midterm grades.
