How to prepare: Ensure you can login to HomerConnect (and Duo). If you need assistance please contact homer@ithaca.edu.

Review your roster: Are all of 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 registrar@ithaca.eduThis will reduce the number of NGS grades.

How to post grades? Based on your feedback, here is an updated how to video.

What is LDA? Last Attend Date. This only needs to be assigned for students that have a grade of F. If you are assigning a grade of F to a student you will need to enter the Last Attend Date 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 Last Attend Date as the first date of the term:

·         Spring term began 1/25/2021

·         Spring block II term began 3/22/2021

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

Incomplete grades: can be submitted by faculty via IC Workflow until Wednesday, May 19 at 10:00 pm.  After this date, only NGS (no grade submitted) can be changed to an incomplete grade via IC Workflow using the grade change workflow (aka you cannot change a posted letter grade to an Incomplete grade).  All Incomplete grades must be reviewed and approved by the Dean’s Office no later than Thursday, May 20 at 10:00am.

Grade Changes: Once a grade has been rolled the only way to modify the grade is via a grade change in IC Workflow.  The Grade Change workflow for spring grading will be available starting Tuesday, May 12th, 9:00am.  Grade changes cannot be submitted from: Thursday, May 20 at 10:00 am until Thursday, May 20 at 4:00 pm.. IC Workflow will be available again for grade changes starting 4;00 pm on Thursday May 20.

Final GPA and Academic Standing: will be completed by Thursday, May 20 by 4:00 pm.

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 covert to the S/D/F option.  

If you have any questions, please contact Office of the Registrar at registrar@ithaca.edu.

Thank you.
