Student Grade Submission Using CUNYfirst
Grading via Faculty Self-Service
Grading via Faculty Self-Service will be available for the summer 2021 five-week one session beginning Thursday, August 12, 2021 (12:01am) through Wednesday, August 18, 2021 (11:59pm).
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” in order 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 are able to 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 these sessions, that means Wednesday, August 18, 2021 (11:59pm). Starting Thursday, August 19, grades need to be submitted via our revised post-deadline submission policy. You must print the CUNYfirst version of your grade roster (word or excel versions will not be accepted), manually 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 through your department.
