Spring 2022 Grading Memorandum (May 18, 2022 – May 27, 2022)
May 16, 2022
Dear Spring 2022 Faculty,
Grading via Faculty Self-Service will be available for the Spring 2022 term beginning Wednesday, May 18, 2022 (12:01am) through Friday, May 27, 2022 (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 can assign the grade of WU to undergraduate students on the 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.
As you are aware, CUNY’s grading policy states that grades be submitted no later than three (3) business days after the last day of the final examination period. For this session, that means Friday, May 27, 2022 (11:59pm). Starting Tuesday, May 31, grades need to be submitted via our revised post-deadline submission policy. You must print or download the CUNYfirst version of your grade roster (word or excel versions will not be accepted), manually record the grades, sign it, and email it, from your Baruch email address, to Baruch.GradeRosters98@login.cuny.edu.
Once your roster has been posted, any request for change(s) to a grade(s) must be initiated via the on-line Grade Change Application system 24-48 hours after roster submission.
Failure to submit and post your grades on time will cause great inconvenience to our students:
– Some of your courses are pre-requisites for summer and fall 2022 courses.
– Will delay the conferral of a student’s degree for spring 2022.
– Rosters not submitted delay the distribution of financial aid packages.
– Students depend on their company tuition re-imbursement plan to meet their tuition payment obligation to the college.
