Distribution of Grade Rosters

Rosters will be available beginning approximately one week prior to the last day of classes. Grades must be submitted 72 hours after the final exam. If no exam is scheduled, the grade submission deadline defaults to the due date.

Missing Names on Grade Rosters

If an attending student's name is missing from your grade roster, you may submit a grade using the Change Grade/ Supplemental Grade form, available in your UDSIS Faculty Center, in the Forms folder.

Students who were admitted as freshman to UD and are in their first or second UD semester have a mid-term grading period during the Fall and Spring semesters.

An acceptable letter grade (see above) must be submitted for students who elect to take a course for pass/fail grading. The letter grade will default to "P" or "F" as appropriate.
Incomplete ("I") Grades

At the discretion of the instructor, a student may be granted an incomplete ("I") as an end of term grade. An incomplete grade will automatically default to "F" two weeks into the next regular semester. The faculty member has several options regarding the default deadline:

  1. Do nothing. Allow the grade to default to "F".
  2. Submit an Incomplete Grade Explanation, providing an alternative to the the default "F".
  3. Submit an Incomplete Grade Extension, extending the default deadline to allow the student additional time to complete the work.

Incomplete Grade Explanation and Incomplete Grade Extension requests are available in your UDSIS Faculty Center, in the Forms folder.
