Grade reporting deadlines are established so that:

  1. Grades for graduating seniors are available in sufficient time to allow for checking the final semester's work to assure that graduation requirements have been met and;
  2. Students who are academically dropped for unsatisfactory scholarship can be notified of that fact prior to the beginning of the next semester.

Two grade-reporting options are available to faculty:

  1. Faculty are encouraged to use the Web based grading services offered through eLion. To use this service, the faculty member must be assigned a SecurID card.
  2. Faculty may use paper-based grade rosters, where either department staff or Registrar office staff using the ISIS system will perform the recording of grades on behalf of the faculty.

The Office of the University Registrar is responsible for distributing grade reporting instructions to the faculty, academic department, college, and campus offices. Faculty will be notified through use of the Penn State e-mail system when their course is ready to be graded. Courses may be graded starting the day following the defined calendar end-date of the course. Grades are to be recorded no later than two business days after the final examination or final course assessment.
