Instructors Need to Get Final Grades In No Later than Monday, 21 December

This just in from Don Witt, Director of Undergraduate Admission and University Registrar:

Grades must be submitted for all students by the University Senate’s deadline (Senate Rule 5.1.6) of Monday, 21 December. The final grading window is open as of today and will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on December 21st.

Important processes such as degree conferral, end-of-term progression (i.e., GPA, classification, academic standing and honors updates), eligibility for financial aid and course prerequisite checks rely on timely grade entry.  Delinquent grades can negatively impact students. [Editor’s note: … and that will negatively impact our shared goals for improving UK’s retention and graduation rates!]
