The University has an official grade deadline for each session and/or term; however the grade posting process begins at an earlier date. Grade posting will begin the same day that rosters have been made available for grading. Once grades have been posted, grade changes must be submitted via the Grade Change Request.
In order to record grades online, please log into the portal, click on "Faculty Center Login" (which can be found on the right side menu). Once there, click on Self Service and then, Faculty Center where the Grade Rosters will appear once they have been generated for the current term. If you require detailed help, click on 'Learn More' (listed under the Faculty Center Login).
Grade Changes for students can be submitted online through the portal. Once the grade change request is submitted, the grade change request is routed into a workflow for authorized academic center representatives to approve the grade changes; once approved, the Registrar’s Office finalizes the transaction. Both faculty and approvers are able to view where the grade change resides in the workflow, and faculty receive email notifications once the requests have been processed. The final step in the workflow is the grade change request is approved the Office of the University Registrar.
Importing grades from PeopleSoft to Blackboard is possible.To set up grades from PeopleSoft to Blackboard, set up an External Grade Column in preparation for grades to be imported. Any discrepancies between the student data in Blackboard/PeopleSoft will be displayed on an error report within the grade roster. Once errors have been resolved and all students have received a grade, remember to set the roster in an ‘Approved’ status so the grades can be posted. At this time grades cannot be uploaded from a spreadsheet directly into PeopleSoft.
