Grades Policy: Undergraduate Students
Effective Date: 9/10/2018
Reaffirmed Date: N/A
Correlates to Procedure No.: N/A
Issuing Authority: Provost
Issuing Office: Office of the Provost
PURPOSE AND APPLICATION
Faculty are required to submit grades in a timely manner to support the student experience and to provide administrators with up-to-date student data.
STATEMENT OF POLICY
Faculty members (full time & adjuncts) are responsible for reporting their grades each term via Black Board Learn (BbLearn) or BANNERWEB (accessible from DrexelOne) by the associated deadlines for each term. The Office of the University Registrar manages the grading processes for each term.
- 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 submitted within an academic year should be changed through the DrexelOne Grade Change Portal. If the academic year has passed since the course was graded, a 'Change of Grade' form will need to be submitted to your academic department. The form, with required signatures, should be submitted by the Office of the Dean of the academic department to the Office of University Registrar.
ENTITIES AFFECTED BY THIS POLICY

The process for grade submission is posted on the Office of the Registrar website.
