Grading Policy Deadlines
As you are aware, CUNY has enacted a new grading deadline policy. This policy states that grades are to be submitted no later than three (3) business days after the last day of the final exam period. This term, that means Friday, October 23 (11:59pm). Starting October 24, grades must be submitted via our usual post-deadline submission policy. You must print the CUNYfirst version of your roster, manually record the grades, sign it, and have your Dean or a Dean’s designee sign the roster and scan and email it from your Baruch email address to GradeRosters@Baruch.cuny.edu.
Please visit the following link for information on how to submit and post your grades. Please pay careful attention to the various drop down indicators such as Grade Roster Type, Midterm, Final grade.
Failure to Enter Grades On Time
Failure to enter grades on time will cause great inconvenience to our students:
- The grades are needed in order to confer Fall 2020 degrees.
- Students on probation may not register for the Winter & Spring 2021 courses until their Fall Summer 2020 grades have been entered and reviewed.
- Some of your courses are pre-requisites for Winter & Spring 2021 courses.
- Delaying the distribution of financial aid packages.
- Students depend on their company tuition re-imbursement plan to meet their tuition payment obligation to the college.
