Important Notes

In the Faculty Grade Entry Screen, courses are listed in ascending order by CRN. Click on the 'Term' column header twice to get the most current term at the top.

Federal regulations require Indiana State University to provide proof of attendance for all Financial Aid recipients.

A last date of attendance is required for all students who stop attending classes and receive a grade of F. Please note the following change in grading procedure, effective Fall 2015:

If the student stopped attending and you assign a grade of F, please enter the last date of attendance using the format MM/DD/YYYY in the box provided. If the student attended class and earned the 'F', please enter the last day of the class. For example, if the final exam was taken on 05/03/2016, you would enter 05/03/2016. The date cannot be in the future, it must be today's date or prior.

If the student never attended class, enter the first day of the term as the student's last date of attendance. 

If you fail to assign a last date of attendance for any student to which you assign a letter grade of 'F', your grade sheet will show the following error message: "Last date of attendance required for this grade."

If you are a teaching assistant and cannot access your course(s) via Faculty Self-Service, then you will need to have your department request that you be added as an instructor on the course(s) here. You will also need to sign a FERPA acknowledgement here.
