All courses offered for credit shall include either a final examination given at the regularly scheduled final examination time or a summative assessment (e.g., portfolios, essays, project reports). Once the examination schedule is printed, no changes are permitted. All forms of examination (quizzes, take-home tests, etc.) are prohibited on any scheduled class or reading day during the calendar week in which regularly scheduled final exams begin.
Official Grade rosters must be posted in UAccess Instructor Center no later than 48 hours after the final examination is held.
"Blank" Grades: If grades for an entire class are not received by the final grading deadline, or if there are no final grades indicated on the Official Grade Roster, all students in the class will be left blank. Prior to 2002, students were awarded the temporary "Y" grade.
Failing Grades and Reporting the Last Date of Attendance: The Department of Education requires the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to report the last date of attendance for failing grades. See the "Instructor FAQ for Last Date of Attendance" attachment below for more information, including instructor grade roster instructions.
