Access to Post Grades

Post access is required to post or change grades. Reach out to your department scheduling contact with questions about grading access. If there was an adjustment to your grading access, please allow 24 hours for this to be updated. 

 

Incomplete Grades

Incomplete Grades will lapse if a grade change form is not submitted by the deadline listed below, regardless of the date posted in the Student Information System (SIS). If an additional extension is approved, a grade change form must be submitted to change the I grade to an IX (Incomplete Extension). Detailed instructions are located on the Enter and Post Grades through the Grade Roster instructions.

Once a lapse grade has posted, it cannot be returned to an I or changed to an IX. A grade change form must be submitted when a final grade is determined.

Lapse Deadline

The lapse deadline is always noon on the 6th Saturday of the subsequent term regardless of the date displayed or posted in the Student Information System (SIS). Mark your calendar with these upcoming deadlines:

  • Autumn 2023 - noon, Saturday, Feb. 17, 2024
  • Spring 2024 - noon, Saturday, June 15, 2024
  • Summer 2024 - noon, Saturday, Sept. 28, 2024
