-All final grades must be submitted using the SIS Online Grading System. Access to the system will be available beginning on Monday, April 26.
-The use of “Incomplete” (I) grades is governed by strict regulations. If you have questions about whether or not an Incomplete is warranted in a particular case, please contact the Registrar’s Office for guidance.
