From: Edward D. Adams, Senior Registrar

Dear Fall 2012 Faculty,

WebGrade will be available for the Fall 2012 on-line grade submission from midnight Friday, December 14 through 11:59pm Thursday, January 3, 2013.

 

Please note, effective this fall:

 

After WebGrade is closed, all students will be awarded a Z grade, directing student inquiries directly to the faculty member.

 

All late grade submissions will be accepted only on the print screen of

 

WebRoster (signed and dated) to ensure accuracy of names and prior grades awarded.

 

 

Failure to enter your grades on time will cause great inconvenience to the students as well as to you (you will need to manually submit your grades to the Registrar’s Office).

•          We need to have these grades in order to confer Fall degrees.

•          Graduate students on probation may not register for the Spring 2013 until they have been evaluated after grades for fall have been entered.

•          Some of your courses are pre-requisites for spring courses.

•          Students depend on their company tuition re-imbursement plan to meet their tuition payment obligation to the college.

 

WebGrade is Baruch’s on-line grading system that allows you to submit final grades on-line without coming to our office.  WebGrade may be accessed from any Internet-accessible computer using a standard web browser.  Once grades have been submitted, they are automatically sent to the students via e-mail and loaded within a few hours to the Student Information system (SIMS/BOSS).

 

To gain access to WebGrade, please review the information at:   http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/registrar/webgrade

Please also view the introductory web tutorial.

 

NOTES:

 

Please enter grades according to the grading policy for your course. The Grading Index Policy is available with a click of the mouse on your web roster.  Please do not assign “P” grades for students who tell you that they are taking a class pass/fail: assign the letter grade they deserve and the system will automatically apply the P if the grade is A-D.

 

Should you encounter technical problems while using the WebGrade system, please contact the Computing and Technology Help Desk at 646-312-1010.

 

Questions regarding grading policies should be directed to Beverley King at the Registrar’s office: 646-312-1195 or to me at the number below.

 

With thanks for your cooperation,

 

Edward D. Adams

Senior Registrar
