When a change in grade is deemed appropriate, the instructor will initiate and approve the change using their Faculty Center in the student information system.

In order for the instructor to initiate a grade change, the following conditions must be satisfied:

  1. The instructor is identified in the student system as an instructor of record for the course.
  2. The instructor is authenticated to the Faculty Center using both the Penn State Access account (userID and password) and the two-factor authentication.
  3. 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.
