Students who attended:
To ensure that all grades have been saved accurately and successfully, please exit after submitting your grades then re-enter the roster and review it one more time. If you missed seeing an error message, the grades may not have been saved. A quick double check now when you can easily make the correction online may save you from having to complete a grade change form for each student later.
To print a copy of the grade roster for your records:

|Grade changes||You may access a grade roster and make changes on the web until the grade entry deadline. Once grades are rolled to student transcripts (indicated by Yes in the Rolled column), you will need to submit a grade change form to make corrections.|
|Incomplete Contracts||When you assign a Incomplete (I), an Incomplete Contract should be filled out, signed and turned in to your Dean's Office. The Dean's Office will forward contracts to the Admissions, Registration and Records Office.|
|Student is not on grade roster||If a student does not appear on your grade roster, you will need to complete a Post Semester Registration and Grade Submission form to give the student permission to register late for your class. Forms are available in the Faculty Office area, Admissions, Registration and Records office (9140-TTC), and the main office of AWH. Please list the grade the student earned on this form. The form requires both your signature and the Dean's signature. Give the completed form to the student to bring to the Admissions, Registration and Records Office with their payment for the class.|
|Team-taught courses||Only the primary instructor can access the grade roster for courses taught by more than one instructor.|
|Withdrawal exceptions||If you wish to allow a student to withdraw late, you will need to write a memo granting permission, obtain the Dean's signature and submit the memo to the Admissions, Registration and Records Office. Leave the student's grade listed as "none."|
|Grades available to students||Grades will be available to students on the web after the final due date. They are not immediately viewable when you post them, they must be rolled as a batch to their transcripts. The date grades will be rolled is published on the Semester Action Dates.|
