Final Grade Submission Instructions:

Blackboard Submit Grades to Colleague

  • Log in to WebAdvisor, click on "Midterm and Final Grading with Rubrics Rosters", select the current term (leave date fields blank), and select the class roster desired.  Please remember rosters with only one or two students e.g. tutorials, guided studies, etc.
  • Every student on your final rosters must receive a grade from the drop-down box! No blanks, please!
  • The grades indicated in the pull-down grade box on the roster fit the student and the type of registration--traditional, pass/fail, or audit grading. The choice of grades for students in pass/fail courses are "S" and "U" whereas audit students can only receive a "Z" (successful audit) or "UZ" (unsuccessful audit).  An "H" is also available in the pull-down grade box for students completing an honors course with work of exceptional quality.

"C-" Report Instructions:

  • The "C-" forms (to be completed for all students who receive a final grade of C- or lower) can be completed online at the same time grades are entered or at a later time, but no later than May 17. This information is an important item used by the Committee on Academic Standing. 
  • To avoid confusion, I recommend recording and releasing the final grades to the Registrar's Office first and then returning to complete any "C-" forms necessary as each of the "C-" forms has its own submit button which is separate from the grading function.

Additional Grade Submission Information:

  • Grade changes/corrections cannot be made on WebAdvisor but will be accepted through e-mail only to from your VWU e-mail account until midnight, May 17th. Later grade changes/corrections must be approved by Associate Vice President, Dr. Loren Marquez.
  • Incomplete ("I") grade changes for the fall semester must be submitted on the "Term Incomplete Roster" on your WebAdvisor menu no later than Tuesday, May 14th. (An earlier deadline may be imposed at your discretion.)  Student work should be required in ample time to allow you to submit a final grade by May 14th at the latest. It is recommended that grades of "I" be given only after consultation with the student and not as a substitute for a failing grade.

Please contact the Registrar's Office if you have questions.
