Grade Submission Policies

  • Grades for full semester classes are to be submitted by the posted deadline for the semester. For sessions within the full academic semester, grades are to be submitted within 72 hours after the final examination.
  • Grading deadlines are posted both on the Dates and Deadlines Calendar available to students and in the list above each semester
  • All grades and grade changes must be submitted via Catalyst, except in the two instances indicated below.
    1. To record a grade for a student who added your class after the end of the term, you will need to send a Change of Grade Form to the Registrar’s Office.
    2. To change a lapsed I/F grade, you will need to submit a Change of Grade Form.

Change of Grade Forms

To maintain the integrity of grades, only faculty may obtain Change of Grade Forms from the Office of the Registrar. Because of this, the form is not made publicly available. Please email us at for an electronic copy of the form.

Forms submitted to the Office of the Registrar by students will not be accepted.
