    It will stay on the same page, but grades will have been submitted. Click "Submit" every few minutes to save your work.

  6. Repeat this for each class, and for each section of cross-listed classes.

Note: Entered grades become permanent. You may submit a grade change request if the grade is improperly placed.

Special Instructions

If you assign a grade of "F", "UW", or "UC" you will also need to fill in the date of last attendance. If it's an online class, use the last time they submitted an assignment or interacted with the class. To find this, click "People" in your Canvas class, click on the person's name, then click on their name again on the side panel that opened up, then click the "Access Report" button to see a report of when they last interacted with the class.

If you don't see your class listed, you might not yet be listed as the instructor. Check the class schedule if the instructor is still listed as "TBA," or someone else is listed, you'll need to have your department email with the CRN and your ID number so the Registrar's Office can assign you to the class.

Note: Unfortunately, with Banner, currently there is no option to upload a batch of grades by copying & pasting from Excel or Canvas. You must choose each grade from the pull-down list one by one.
