Registrar's Notes

December 20, 2010

Grading – all grades are due by noon on Tuesday -

  • We will close the grading system shortly after noon to begin the grade roll process. Please let your instructors know that they need to have entered all grades by noon.
  • Students will be able to view their grades by late afternoon or early evening.
  • After the noon deadline, any grades submitted later on Tuesday, will be available for student view the following day.
  • Please remember that it is very important to students that they do receive their grades on Tuesday. Financial aid, scholarships, and graduation can all be affected when grades are not submitted on time.
  • And also remember that all students need to receive a grade, including students in independent research, thesis and dissertation credits.
