Dear Winter 2019 Faculty,
Grading via Faculty Self-Service will be available for the Winter 2019 intersession from Wednesday, January 23, 2019 (12:01am) through Monday, January 28, 2019 (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 your grades have been posted, 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 have not taken the final exam.
As you are aware, CUNY has enacted a new grading deadline policy. This policy states that grades must be submitted no later than three (3) business days after the last day of the final exam period. This year, that means Monday, January, 28 (by 11:59pm). Starting Tuesday, January 29, grades must be submitted via our usual post-deadline submission policy. Please print your CUNYfirst grade roster, manually record the grades, sign the roster, have your Dean or a Dean’s designee sign the roster, and either bring the roster to the Office of the Registrar (H-850) or scan it and send it from your Baruch email address to GradeRosters@baruch.cuny.edu.
