Post Final Grades Using the Grade Roster


Navigation: Self Service - Faculty Center - Grade Roster

Although you can track and maintain assignment grades using a variety of methods, you will post final grades via the Faculty Center Grade Roster.

  • The Faculty Center Grade Roster can be used to view, add, approve and post grades.
  • A specified format must be used to successfully upload grades.
  • Only instructors listed on the class schedule can upload grades for a class.

NOTES For Carmen Gradebook Users:

  • Instructors do not need to use the Carmen Gradebook to post final grades to the Faculty Center Grade Roster.

  • When using the Carmen Gradebook, instructors do not have to use the feature that transfers final grades from Carmen to the Faculty Center.

  • Instructors can manually copy grades from Carmen to the Faculty Center for posting. This can be most easily done by opening two browser windows and entering the grades directly into the Faculty Center Grade Roster.

  • When posting final grades for graduating seniors, it is suggested that instructors manually enter just these grades into the Faculty Center rather than using Carmen to transfer them.

Regardless of the method used to enter the grades, you must "POST" the grades in the Faculty Center for them to be logged into the student's permanent academic record.
