December 2018

We hope you have had a successful semester and have a wonderful winter break! Here are a few things you should keep in mind as the semester draws to a close.

Final Grades and Course Evaluations

Fall grades will be published in eCommon on Thursday, December 20 at 12:00 noon (EST).

Students who have already completed all course evaluations will be able to view final grades and access transcripts immediately. If you have not done so, you will be prompted to complete the evaluations before you are able to access your final grades.

Incomplete Grade Changes

Did you receive an incomplete grade last spring or summer? Don’t miss the deadline to get it changed. Instructors must submit a completed Grade Change Form to the Registrar’s Office by Thursday, December 20 at noon. Make sure to resolve your incomplete grades with plenty of time to spare so they can submit grades on time.

Incomplete grades from last spring or summer will change to Incomplete/Failure grades if not changed.

Fall Graduates Register to Participate for Commencement!

If you are graduating this fall and plan on attending the May 2019 commencement ceremony, please register to participate in eCommon (under Student Services > Graduation Ceremonies).
