These are the dates that the grade roster icon will appear in the Faculty Center. Please do not confuse this with the grade book icon which is not used.

Spring 2023 final grade submission is due no later than Monday, May 15, 2023, at 4:30pm. Please see the links below for more specific information on the submission of final grades.

Please be advised that your college may have an earlier deadline in order to ensure these grades are received in a timely manner.

It is important to receive all grades by this deadline date as many students request various types of documentation from the Office of Registration and Records immediately at the end of the semester and/or degree conferral. These requests include official transcripts, degree certifications, letters of good standing, etc. Students request these documents with the understanding that they are inclusive of the student’s academic achievement from all of their classes from the spring 2023 semester.
