When are grades due?

In compliance with Faculty Senate policy all grades should be submitted within 72 hours of the final exam.

When can I submit grades online?

You can access your online grade submission session every day between the hours of 6:00 AM and 12:00 AM as soon as grading opens for the current term.

Please keep in mind the system is backed up every morning at 1:00 AM.  If you are in the process of entering grades, any grades you select but do not submit before 1:00 AM will be lost.  If you are still trying to enter grades at 1:00 AM, you will receive an error message and your access will cease.

Can you help me log in?

Why is someone else's name appearing in the "User" column?

Usernames which appear in all capital letters indicate processes done by the Registrar's Office. A typical case in which you would see someone else's netid in the "User" column would be when our office has withdrawn a student from your course.

Why is my course listed as non-gradable?

Non-gradable sections are lab or discussion groups which are linked to another section that is gradable. Both the non-gradable and gradable sections of your course should appear in your drop down menu.

Why can't I select the grade I want to assign my student from their drop down menu?

Only grades a student can earn will appear in the menu next to the student’s name.

For exampleif a student has chosen to audit your course letter grades will not appear in that student's grading menu. Instead, the options of None, AU, I, UNSUCC, and XC will appear. If you feel the inncorrect options are appearing for a student in your course please contact our office at registrar@uvm.edu or (802) 656-2045.

What does the message "Please submit the grades often" mean?

In order to maintain a high level of security your online grade submission session is set to time out after four hours. To insure you don’t lose your work you should submit your grades frequently. Not all students need to have a grade assigned before you click submit. You will be able to change grades you submit until they are "rolled" to academic history daily at 1:00 AM.

I've submitted my grades. When will my students be able to see them on their record?

Students can see the grade you assigned them only after that grade has been "rolled" to academic history. Grades roll to academic history daily when the system is backed up at 1:00 AM. Once a grade has been rolled a student can view the grade online through her SIS access (even if you have not submitted grades for the entire grade list).

I need to make changes to a grade I've submitted online but the drop down menu is not appearing. What should I do?

If the drop down menu is no longer appearing next to a student's name on your grading list it means that their grade has been "rolled" to academic history. Once a grade has been rolled you will need to submit a request for grade change online. Read more about submitting online requests for grade changes here.
