Wrapping Up the Course
Last updated on 1/9/2015
A bit of work remains after the last session of your course.
First, the Final Grade Roster needs to be completed in a timely manner. The Final Grade Roster will be sent to you by the Registrar's Office. A date will be given by which the roster must be returned to your department. These due dates vary, so it's important to look for e-mails from your department and the Associate Provost. Whenever possible, please submit your grades sooner than the deadline.
Remember, the grades are important for the most important of people, the students. Grades affect their ability to register for the next semester; to obtain financial aid; to get the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow the diploma. It's our job not to let them down.
Second, you may need to give a final grade of incomplete (INC) for work not completed during the term. When the student completes the work you should file an Application for Change of Grade with your department chairperson. This application may be obtained from your department secretary. It must be approved by the department chairperson when completed. Students have one semester in which to make up the work (excluding Summer). If not completed in that time, the grade automatically is changed to an "F".
Our responsibility is to help clear these incompletes as quickly as possible once the student has completed the work.
Also see Grading section of this handbook for a more complete discussion of grading at Baruch.
Here is a helpful guide for grading on CUNYFirst. It can be accessed from any internet-accessible computer (PC, MAC or UNIX) using a standard Web browser (Firefox recommended). Once the grades are submitted, they will be loaded within a few hours to the student information system (SIMS/BOSS).
