Faculty must submit semester grades five business days after the end of the examination period, according to University Policy.
Submitting grades on time prevents delays students may experience related to transcript requests, degree verifications by employers, conferral of degrees and mailing of diplomas.
Faculty who miss the deadline or need to change grades after they are processed and viewable by students in BU BRAIN Self Service must go to their departments or Financial Aid and Student Records, located in the Admissions Center, Room 112, to obtain a change of grade form.
A change of grade form must be submitted in person by the faculty or a department staff member directly to Student Records.
New NSF Grade: Students who did not attend class or participate in any way, must be given a new grade of NSF = “No Show F”. The grade will appear as an “F” on the student’s transcript and provides a way to track students who do not actually participate in the course.
Note: If an MG (Missing Grade) or an I (Incomplete) is noted on a student's transcript, a degree will not be conferred. Please submit your grades according to the above guidelines.
Please review the following resources to learn more about the grading process in Banner. The University Center for Training and Development will also offer training sessions to assist faculty.
