Student Grade Submission Using CUNYfirst
Grading via Faculty Self-Service
Grading via Faculty Self-Service will be available for the Winter 2024 session beginning Tuesday, January 23, 2024 (12:01 am) through Friday, January 26, 2024 (11:59 pm).
Baruch’s online grading system via CUNYfirst allows you to submit final grades from on or off-campus. Once you have entered, reviewed, and saved your grade roster, you must then click on submit grades to the Registrar which will prompt the “POST” button; You must click on “POST” for your final grades to be officially submitted. Once your grades have been posted, the students will be able to view them instantaneously via CUNYfirst Student Self-Service.
You can assign the grade of WU to undergraduate students on the grade roster provided they did not take the final examination.
WU – A grade of “WU” is to be assigned to students who attended a minimum of one class session, completely stopped attending, and did not officially withdraw. A “WU” grade should never be given in place of an “F” grade. The “F” grade is an earned grade based on poor performance and the student not meeting the learning objectives/outcomes of the course throughout the entire academic term/session.
Grading Policy Deadlines
As you are aware, CUNY’s grading policy states that grades be submitted no later than three (3) business days after the last day of the final examination period. For this session, that means Wednesday, December 27, 2023 (11:59 pm).
Starting Thursday, December 28, grades need to be submitted via our revised post-deadline submission policy. You must print or download the CUNYfirst version of your grade roster (Word or Excel versions will not be accepted), record the grades, sign it, and email it, from your Baruch email address to GradeRosters@Baruch.cuny.edu. Once your roster has been posted, any request for change(s) to a grade(s) must be initiated via the online Grade Change Application system 24-48 hours after the roster submission date.
Once your roster has been posted, any request for change(s) to a grade(s) must be initiated through your department. Excel spreadsheets and other versions of grades will not be accepted.
Failure to Enter Grades On Time
Failure to submit and post your grades on time will cause great inconvenience to our students:
- Some of your courses are prerequisites for winter/spring 2024 courses.
- Will delay the conferral of a student’s degree for fall 2023.
- Rosters not submitted delay the distribution of financial aid packages.
- Students depend on their company’s tuition reimbursement plan to meet their tuition payment obligation to the college.
