Grade Reporting

Posting of Semester Grades
University policy requires faculty teaching on-campus courses to submit grades electronically to the Office of the University Registrar (through LEO Online) within 48 hours of the final examination. Distance Learning course grades are due within 48 hours of receipt of examinations by the on-campus instructor.

All grades are reported to the Registrar's Office and are submitted electronically by faculty. It is illegal to post grades using any portion of the student's Social Security number or University ID number (UIN) as an identifier. Instructors and students must develop alternative identifiers for posting or providing grade information. The only official grades are those reported to the Registrar's Office. Grades posted in Blackboard are not official grades.

Grades for Consortium students are reported by the Registrar's Office to the Registrar at the student's home institution (after they have been posted by the instructor). Visiting/transient students must request an official transcript to transfer credits back to their home institution.

The Registrar's Office will not report students' grades over the telephone or by e-mail.

Progress Report Grades - 100- and 200-Level Courses
University policy states that students in 100- and 200-level courses must receive feedback on their progress in these courses before the mid-term in the semester. All faculty teaching 100- and 200-level courses are required to post progress report grades to LEO Online by the beginning of the 5th week of classes.

The individual student is the only person who has access to view this information through LEO Online. However, students may be contacted by a student success advisor through e-mail, if their name appears on the list of those students who are earning a grade below C, to determine the best course of action for academic success.

ALL QUESTIONS ABOUT PROGRESS REPORT GRADES SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO THE COURSE INSTRUCTOR.

To view progress report grades:

  1. Log in to the LEO Online secure web site
  2. Select Admissions, Registration... etc.
  3. Select Student Records
  4. Select Progress Report Grades
  5. Select a term (i.e., Fall 2013). NOTE: If the current term is not available for selection, NO progress report grades have been posted for you for this term. If a grade does not display for a course, one has not been assigned or reported by the instructor.
  6. Be sure to log out of LEO Online when you are done.

Grade Changes
Grade changes must be submitted by the instructor in LEO Online or in writing, to the Office of the University Registrar. The Registrar's Office will not make grade changes without the appropriate documentation. If needed, grade change forms are available to faculty from departmental offices.

Grade changes are posted to the student's academic record as soon as they are received in the Registrar's Office.

Students whose grade(s) have been changed will receive an automated e-mail notification at the time of the change. The student will be directed to check LEO Online to view the new grade.

Students expecting grade changes should first check their online grade report. All questions concerning grade changes should be directed to the course instructor. Use the Faculty/Staff Search to find your instructor's e-mail address, or use the e-mail links in LEO Online to e-mail your instructor.
