G-5: CORRECTED GRADES
When a change in grade is deemed appropriate, the instructor will initiate and approve the change using the eLion Faculty service. After recording the change, the student will be notified by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) of this change, as will the instructor’s college dean or designated representative.
In order for the instructor to initiate a grade change, the following conditions must be satisfied:
- The instructor is identified as an instructor of record for the course.
- The instructor is authenticated to the eLion system using both the Penn State Access account (userID and password) and the SecurID card.
- The grade change must be recorded within one year after the end of the semester in which the course was taken.
When a course instructor is no longer available to resolve an error in calculating or recording a grade, the instructor's department head or equivalent is authorized to take the necessary action and then notifies the University Registrar of the necessary grade change using a Grade Change Authorization form.
