Entering Grades

All grades should be entered in Axess by the instructor of record or an officially assigned grading proxy. Grading opens the first day of the End Quarter Period.

Reporting of Grades

All grades must be reported within 96 hours after the time and day reserved for the final examination, and in no case later than the grade deadline indicated on the Academic Calendar which is usually at 11:59 on the Tuesday following the final examination period.

In the case of degree candidates in Spring Quarter, final grades must be reported by noon of the Thursday prior to Commencement Sunday.

Revision of End-Quarter Grades

When submitted via Axess or filed with the Registrar’s Office, end-quarter grades are final and not subject to change by reason of a revision of judgment on the instructor’s part; nor are passing grades to be revised on the basis of a second trial (for example, a new examination or additional work undertaken or completed after the end of the quarter.) Changes may be made at any time to correct an error in computation or in transcribing, or where some part of the student’s work was overlooked; that is, if the new grade is the one that would have been entered on the original report had there been no mistake in computing and had all the pertinent data been before the instructor, the change is a proper one.

Information on entering grades is available on the Axess for Faculty web pages.

In the event that a student disputes an end-quarter grade, the established grievance procedure should be followed (See the “Statement on Student Academic Grievance Procedures” section of this bulletin.)
