Spring grade submission dates announced

Submission dates for spring semester grades, including those for eight-week courses, are now available.

Grades can be entered and submitted during the dates in the table below. (Please contact the Office of the Registrar at (765) 49-46165 or with any questions.) Once a student’s grades have been rolled into his or her academic history, they will no longer be available to the faculty on grade rosters in Self-Service Banner (i.e., myPurdue).

Grade-submission windows for the spring semester 2009 are as follows:

Grades for 8-Week Courses
Open Monday, March 2 8 a.m.
Close Friday, March 13 5 p.m.
End-of-Semester Grades
Monday, May 4
8 a.m.
Tuesday, May 12
5 p.m.

The faculty may submit grades using either the myPurdue portal or Blackboard Vista from anywhere they have a computer and Internet connection. Grades for eight-week courses not submitted in March may be submitted at the end of the semester.

How to Enter Grades in myPurdue

  1. Using your Purdue Career Account username and password, log in to myPurdue here:
  2. Select the Faculty tab. When grade entry is open, your classes will be displayed in the Faculty Grade Assignment channel (box). (Note: Final Grades will be the only selection in the pop-up menu — even during the submission period for eight-week courses.
  3. Click Go.
  4. Click the green or yellow triangle to start entering grades for a class. (Green indicates that grade entry has not been started for this class; yellow means that grade entry has begun, yet not completed.)
  5. After finishing and saving the grades, click Back to Faculty/Staff Resources to return to myPurdue.

Remember …
Make sure your FERPA and GLBA certifications are current. Everyone who sees student data (e.g., grades), including all faculty members, must renew their FERPA certifications each year.

Check your Career Account password to see if it needs to be reset. To find out, log in to myPurdue and look in the Career Account Password Status channel on the right.

When selecting a grade from the drop-down list, remember that the ones listed will be the only possible grades for that class and that student.

Entering attendance information is optional.

If you submit a grade of “I” (incomplete), you will need to submit Registrar Form 60 to your department. This should include the reason for the grade, what the student needs to do receive a permanent grade, their grade for coursework completed to that point, and how much weight will be given to the remaining work when computing a final, permanent grade.

Grades will be rolled into students’ academic history at the end of the second business day following the last day of the semester. During the grade-submission period, you may continue to enter grades for students who had not previously had them assigned. You also can change and submit grades up until the submission deadline, after which you can only submit them using Registrar Form 350.

If you have more than four classes, click More to view additional classes or increase the Number of Rows setting.
