Grade Submission Policy

Faculty members (full-time & adjuncts) are responsible for reporting their grades each term via BANNERWEB (accessible from DrexelOne) in a timely manner according to class size:

  • For classes with enrollment less than 50: grades will be due 48 hours after the final exam
  • For classes with enrollment of 50 or more: grades will be due 72 hours after the final exam

Departments are responsible for facilitating the means by which faculty report grades via the web. Accordingly, faculty must be in the Human Resource database and indicated as the primary faculty of record for a course(s) in the BANNER Faculty Load module. Departments must also facilitate web access for their faculty members.

Once original grades have been reported for a course, grades may only be changed manually by completing a 'Change of Grade' form. The form, with required signatures, should be submitted by the Office of the Dean to Drexel Central.

All exceptions to this policy are at the discretion of the Provost.

Faculty members (full-time & adjuncts) are responsible for reporting their grades each term via BANNERWEB (accessible from DrexelOne) by the associated deadlines for each term. Drexel Central manages the grading processes for each term. For more information please view the Grade Reporting Policy.

Grade Change Policy

You are allowed one year from the time a final grade is assigned to contest a course grade. To contest a grade, you will need to first speak with the professor of the course you are contesting the grade for.

You are given one year from the time of separation from an academic program or change of program of study to contest any other actions or changes to your academic record or transcript. Separation from a program includes graduation, non-enrollment, withdrawal, or leave of absence. Approved leaves of absence, including those associated with medical leave or military service will be handled on a case-by-case basis

Student academic standing is determined on a term basis at the close of each term to be effective the first day of the subsequent term of study.
