University of Memphis - Students

Grading Information

To:  Spring 2015 1st Half Part of Term (POT) Faculty

From:  Office of the Registrar

Grading Help:

  • Refer to the Registrar's Grading Guide for detailed instructions on using Faculty Self Service to record grades.

Grading Period:

  • 1st Half grading opens Wednesday, March 4.
  • All 1st Half grades must be entered in Faculty Self Service by
    10am, Monday, March 9.

Important Considerations:

  1. Grades in eCourseware do not update the student record.  Enter all final grades in Faculty Self Service.
  2. Do not enter a date in the Last Attend Date column for students who complete the class (regardless of the grade). Use this column to report stopped-attending or never-attended dates for students who fail to complete the class.
  3. Enter any stopped-attending/never-attended dates by the end of the grading period.
  4. If a student never attends or stops attending and does not officially withdraw, you must assign a failing grade (F or U).
  5. Enter a grade for every student who does not have a W.  All students must be graded.
  6. Note that some students on your grade roster may have a name change. If you need assistance with verifying name changes, please call 678-2810.
  7. Academic status and grades are NOT directory information; do not release these to someone over the phone. You may discuss academic status and grades with a student in person.
  8. You may e-mail a grade to a student, but only to his/her U of M e-mail address. However, since students may access grades on Student Self Service after grades are official, this should not be necessary.
