Spring Semester Grades Due May 14

The deadline for submitting final grades for spring semester courses is 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 14. If you have questions about grading, contact Michelle Heiny in the Registrar's Office at 351-1839. Grades submitted after the deadline will negatively affect students' financial aid and/or graduation.

Grade explanations and instructions for assigning final grades, are available on the Registrar's website.

For technical support when submitting grades in Ursa, contact the Technical Support Center, 970-351-4357 or visit the Technical Support website.

Please Note

  • A last date of attendance (last date of a student's last "academic-related activity") is required for the submission of "F" or "U" grades and is necessary to ensure that any student receiving a failing grade actually attended the class per U.S. Department of Education guidelines (34 CFR 668.22).
  • A grade of "UW" indicates an unauthorized withdrawal and is assigned only when the student has never attended the class for which they were enrolled.
  • At the discretion of the instructor, a temporary grade of Incomplete - "I" may be given to a student who demonstrates that he/she could not complete the requirements of the course due to circumstances beyond the student's control and not reasonably foreseeable. A student must be passing a course at the time that an Incomplete is requested unless the instructor determines that there are extenuating circumstances to assign an Incomplete to a student who is not passing the course.
  • Please remember to never share your passwords for any reason. Providing your Ursa password gives others access to many other things you have access to such as your pay information, email, etc. Sharing passwords is a violation of the University Regulations. If you need access you do not currently have, please call the Technical Support Center at 970-351-4357.
