May 12, 2020
From: Edward D. Adams, Senior Registrar
Dear Spring 2020 Faculty,
Grading via Faculty Self-Service will be available for the spring 2020 term from Friday, May 15, 2020 (12:01am) through Thursday, May 28, 2020 (11:59pm).
Baruch’s on-line grading system via CUNYfirst allows you to submit final grades from on or off-campus. Once you have entered, reviewed, and saved your grade roster, you must then click on submit grades to the Registrar which will prompt the “POST” button; You must click on “POST” in order for your final grades to be officially submitted. Once you have posted your grades, the students will be able to view them instantaneously via CUNYfirst Student Self-Service.
You are able to assign the grade of WU to undergraduate students on the final grade roster provided they did not take the final examination.
WU – A grade of “WU” is to be assigned to students who attended a minimum of one class session, completely stopped attending, and did not officially withdraw. A “WU” grade should never be given in place of an “F” grade. The “F” grade is an earned grade based on poor performance and the student not meeting the learning objectives/outcomes of the course throughout the entire academic term/session.
CUNY’s grading deadline policy states that grades must be submitted no later than three (3) business days after the last day of the final examination period. This term, that means Thursday, May 28, 2020 (11:59pm). Starting Friday, May 29, grades need to be submitted via our revised post-deadline submission policy. You must print the CUNYfirst version of your grade roster, manually record the grades, sign it, and email it, from your Baruch email address, to GradeRosters@Baruch.cuny.edu.
- The grades are required in order to confer spring 2020 degrees.
Rosters not submitted will hamper students from selecting the CR/NC grading basis
- Some of your courses are pre-requisites for summer and fall 2020 courses.
- Rosters not submitted delay the distribution of financial aid packages.
- Some students depend on their company’s tuition re-imbursement plan to meet their tuition payment obligation to the college.
