Deadline-All Spring 2013 grades due: May 8
Grading will be turned on May 8th for spring classes. Grades must be submitted via UAOnline by Wednesday, May 8th at 11:59 p.m.
Because of new compliance requirements for federal financial aids, any grades of "F" or "NB" will require a date of last attendance to be entered. This date should be entered in the "Last Attend Date" column in UAOnline next to the letter grade. You do not need to enter "Attend Hours". The date must be entered in MM/DD/YYYY form. If a student last attended on March 1st, you would enter 03/01/2013. A best guess is fine, if a student has never attended you may use the first day of spring semester 01/15/2013.
Research, thesis, or project courses which may have a deferred grade, must have a DF grade assigned as a place holder.
No Basis Grade- A no basis (NB) grade may be used when the student has not attended or if there is insufficient student progress and/or attendance for evaluation to occur. NB is a permanent grade and may not be used to substitute for the incomplete grade. It cannot be removed later by completing outstanding work. Faculty are requested to submit a last date of attendance in conjunction with this grade (best guess is fine). For students who have never attended the class, please use the first day of your class. Faculty are not required to use the no basis grade and may instead assign a failing grade.
You must submit a grade for every person on your roster; if you do not know the student on your roster you should assign a NB or failing grade.
UAOnline grading will remain on through Wednesday, May 8th. Academic standing, degree awarding, and financial aid eligibility are calculated beginning on Thursday, May 9th . Missing grades impact a student's ability to receive aid, maintain good academic standing, as well as graduate.
