Subject : Spring 2013 Grading
Congratulations on the completion of the spring 2013 semester! I am sure that you are enjoying the final days of your classes, whether that is helping students to prepare for final exams, reading papers, reviewing projects, or listening to student presentations. The end of the semester is an exciting time and I know we are all looking forward to a wonderful summer.
I wanted to take this opportunity to speak with you briefly about an important topic – grading. In the past few days you should have received an email from the Office of Registration Services concerning the process of submitting grades. I just wanted to reiterate the importance of this process. There are always a few questions that get raised at this time of year. Some of these questions can have implications for more than just the student’s transcript or grade point average. In some cases, grades and the timely submission of those grades can impact a student’s financial aid, student bill, graduation and ability to register for the next semester. Also, students need to know how they did in your course to decide if taking a summer course might be the best next step.
Some of the following may be familiar to you and some may not, but I wanted to go over a few implications of the grading process with you as you begin to submit grades for your classes:
I hope that this message has helped to clarify some of the issues surrounding the grading process and how grades might impact things like financial aid. If you have any questions about the points raised in this memo, please do not hesitate to let me know.
If you have any trouble with the submission of the grades for your courses, please get in touch with the Office of Registration Services as soon as possible.
Again, congratulations on the completion of the spring semester and I hope you have a wonderful summer. I look forward to seeing you on campus or at graduation.
