Global Campus email dated May 7, 2021

Subject: Final grades are due by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 11th 

Spring Semester final grades are due by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 11th.

NRC Grades: The NRC grade request form will open for students beginning May 14th at registrar.wsu.edu/nrc/. Student’s requests cannot be processed if their grade is missing. To help with this process, it is important grades are posted no later that May 11th at 5 p.m.

Incomplete Grades in Blackboard Courses: WSU’s contract with Blackboard expires on August 21st, which may impact your course and students working to finish incomplete coursework. If you have students in your Blackboard course who will receive an Incomplete grade, please read the following: 

  • Will the student(s) have completed their coursework so you will be able to submit final grades before August 21st, when you will no longer have access to the course?
  • Will you need our team to transition this course to Canvas to allow time for the student(s) to complete the course and for you to submit final grades? If so, please reply to this message so that we can best serve you and your students.

Confirm now: Do you have access to your grade rosters? To avoid delays, please take a moment to confirm that you have access to all of your grade rosters in myWSU before you begin submitting final grades.

Navigation to the Final Grade Roster: Faculty should go to Faculty Center, and then choose the My Schedule tab. This will present every course for grading. TAs or others will need to find the Faculty Center by going to Main Menu > Self Service > Faculty Center > My Schedule.

Grading: Select the Grade Roster icon to the left of the class you wish to grade. You can give as many grades as you want to at a time, just select SAVE when you are finished. Once all grades have been entered, change the approval status to APPROVED and select SAVE. A message will appear indicating you have successfully submitted your final grades.

Importing Grades:

For steps on how to upload grades from a CSV file to the Faculty Grade Center, visit Grading in myWSU – Instructor CSV File, also available from the Registrar’s Office home page under Videos & UPKs. Also review information about “Z” grades (pdf).

Changing grades: Before the grading deadline, 5 p.m. on May 11th: Change the approval status to Not Reviewed to change any grade. Select SAVE and Approved when you are finished.

What to do if you have problems: Contact the Crimson Service Desk staff at crimsonservicedesk@wsu.edu, 509-335-HELP (4357), or online at its.wsu.edu/csd.

Note: This final grade deadline is based on a full semester and may not include shorter sessions. If you teach a shortened session and have questions about your deadline please reach out to your department coordinator.
