Notes from the Registrar's Office

Please note the following information regarding final grading:

All students MUST receive a grade. A blank grade is NOT acceptable.

  1. WD grades CANNOT be issued by faculty.
  2. Do not issue a P grade unless the course grade value is P/N or P/F. If the course is a standard letter grade course, issuing a P grade will create an error and delay the grading process.
  3. Do not issue an N grade unless the course grade value is P/N. If the course is a standard letter grade course, issuing a P grade will create an error and delay the grading process.
  4. All students who receive either an “F” (failing) or “IN” (Incomplete) grade must have a last date of attendance entered. If you do not enter a last date of attendance your grade sheet will not be accepted. For students who are getting an F because they could not rejoin class but did contact the faculty member after 4/4, please use the date of last contact.
  5. If you do not submit your grades by the deadline, students will be assigned a grade of “M”. In order to correct this grade, you will need to submit each grades via the grade change application on WPConnect.
  6. Grades will be processed throughout the submission period. Once they are processed, students will be able to view their grade; but the only way you will be able to change the grade is through the grade change process

FN Grade

The FN grade is for students who have left the university and have not attempted to contact the instructor regarding their leave after April 4th. ** A last date of attendance is not required.**Students who are receiving this grade left the university without completing the official withdrawal process. IMPORTANT! The FN grade is to identify students who have left the university without notice. Students who have contacted the instructor after 4/4 and were unable to rejoin the class for any reason should not be issued a grade of FN. In this situation, the student should receive an Incomplete (if allowed), an earned grade based on the syllabus if appropriate or receive a grade of “F” if they did not complete enough work to earn a higher letter grade.
