Use the portal's "Student" tab to view your current term grades.
As the exam period approaches, you should see two grades channels on your Student
- Unofficial Student Grades
- Student Grades [official final grades]
Why do we need two channels?
Student Self Service comes with only the Student Grades channel. The Unofficial Student
Grades channel has been created by the University for your convenience. If the Unofficial
channel were not available, you would not be able to see any of your current term's
final course grades until a week after the last exam.
Unofficial Student Grades channel
Use this channel to view your final grades for the current term as soon as your instructors
enter them but before they are declared "official." Faculty have until 10am on the
Monday following the last exam to submit or revise their grades electronically. Grades
are usually not declared "official" until the Thursday of the same week. This channel
allows you to see your grades ASAP.
If you do not see an unofficial grade for one of your courses, it is for one of two
reasons. Either the instructor has not entered the grade yet, or you have not completed
a SETE (Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness) for the course's instructor.
Academic administration at the University has linked viewing unofficial grades to
completion of SETEs. If you need to complete a SETE, follow the appropriate link on
your Student tab.
If you took classes in a part of term that concluded before the end of the semester
(a First Half term in Fall or Spring; a First Half, or First/Second Teacher term in
Summer), the original, unofficial grades will reappear in the Student Unofficial Grades channel at the end of the semester.
If one of these grades was subsequently changed, the changed, official grade will
not appear here. Go to your Academic Transcript page and view your web transcript to confirm a changed grade for an earlier part of term.
Depending on when you access this channel, it will contain three different messages.
- Prior to Final Exams
- During or After Final Exams but Before Grades Are Official
- Once Grades are Official
You cannot request a transcript that contains the current term's grades until the
grades appear in the Student Grades channel or, in other words, until they and your
GPA calculations are declared official.
Student Grades channel
Until the term's grades are declared "official," your Student Grades channel will
contain a list of your current term courses, but it will not contain grades:
However, once grades are declared official, grades no longer appear in the Unofficial
Student Grades channel, but appear in the Student Grades channel instead. In addition
to viewing grades for the term just ended, you can use the channel's term selection
box to view grades for earlier terms. You can also view GPA information through this
channel by clicking on the "Final" link:
