Updating and Changing Grades

Once a grade roster has been submitted to the Registrar’s office and grades have been posted to students' transcripts, temporary grades ('I', 'L', or 'GNR') may be updated to permanent grades using the Request Grade Change feature in Axess.

The feature may also be used to correct permanent grades submitted earlier. A permanent grade may be changed only under the following conditions:

  • Computational Error
  • Exam Overlooked
  • Transcription Error
  • Work Overlooked
  • Administrative Review (e.g., Honor Code Violoation)

Note: The Request Grade Change feature in Axess is only available for one year after the term in which the class was taught. After one year, you must file a grade change form.  Please contact your Department Student Services Manager, or Student Services Center for assitance obtaining a grade change form.

Due to School of Law grading policies, the Request Grade Change function is not available for Law School courses. Please contact the Law School Registrar's Office for assistance.

Open a grade roster, then click on the Request Grade Change button, as peviously shown above.

Step 2: Update/change grade

If you are changing a permanent grade, a drop-down list will appear in the Reason column. Select a reason for each change.

If you are updating a temporary grade ('I', 'L', or 'GNR'), the list of reasons will not appear as you do not need to give a reason.
