How to Prepare

Ensure you can login to HomerConnect (and Duo) and access the final grade entry form: If you need assistance, please contact 

Review your roster:

  • Are all the students attending your class on the roster?
  • Do you have students that have never attended?
  • If you have questions regarding the status of the students on your roster, contact 
  • This will reduce the number of NGS (no grade submitted) grades. 

Things to Remember:

Last Attendance Date(LAD): This only needs to be assigned for students that have a final grade of F. If you are assigning a grade of F to a student, you will need to enter the LAD to be able to save the grade roster. If you are assigning a grade of F to a student who has never attended your class, please enter the LAD as the first day of the term or block: 

  • Summer Session I began 5/28/2024

When students receive federal aid and fail to successfully complete one course within a given semester (for example, earning all F’s), we are required to determine the last day the student attended class or engaged in an academic activity.

Incomplete Grades:

Incomplete grades cannot be assigned in HomerConnect. If you wish to assign an incomplete grade please use the form in IC Workflow Incomplete Grade Request.

“Incompletes are given only when a student is doing satisfactory work but cannot complete the course for a reason not related to academic performance (i.e., medical, family emergency).

To request an incomplete, a student must meet with the faculty instructor of their course and present a legitimate reason to justify the request. The faculty member and student then determine the terms of the completion of the course including specific assignments with criteria for assessment and due date, which can be no later than the end of the following semester. If no complete grade is received by the due date, a grade of F is recorded on the transcript. Undergraduate students may not graduate from Ithaca College with an incomplete recorded on the academic transcript.”

Incomplete grades can be submitted by faculty via IC Workflow until Wednesday, July 10, by 5:00pm, and must be reviewed and approved by the Dean’s Office by 10:00pm. After the deadline, only NGS (no grade submitted) can be changed to an Incomplete grade using the Grade Change form in IC Workflow, once the system reopens for grade change processing on Thursday, July 11, after 4:00pm. You cannot change a posted letter grade to an Incomplete grade. 

To extend the deadline of an Incomplete, please email Stu Fegely at and include the student ID number, term, subject, course number, section number, CRN, and the new grade-submission deadline.

Grade Changes:

Once a grade has been rolled, the only way to modify the grade is through the IC Workflow Grade Change Request form.  The Grade Change form for Summer Session I grading will be available starting Tuesday, July 2, 9:00am.

Grade changes cannot be submitted from: Wednesday, July 10, 5:00pm until Thursday, July 11, after 4:00pm

Final GPA complete: Thursday, July 11, after 4:00pm.

Please note: If a student views a grade for which they have chosen the S/D/F grading option before the Office of the Registrar "rolls grades" the student will see the assigned grade. Once grades are rolled the grade will convert to the S/D/F option.
