General Grading Information

When is the deadline for students to withdraw from a class?

The last day for undergraduate students to withdraw from classes ("W" on transcript) is November 9, 2020. The last day for graduate students to withdraw from classes is November 30, 2020.

Can due dates for assignments be set beyond the published exam day/time for the course?

No. Faculty using other kinds of assessments cannot set the due date for these assignments AFTER their published exam days/times.

What are the days/times that faculty can give a synchronous exam?

Synchronous traditional 2- or 3-hour exams MUST be administered during the two-week exam period, within the time frame specified in the exam schedule for their course(s), to prevent overlap with another faculty member's exams. Please consider different time zones when deciding on the synchronous exam option.

When are grades due?

Faculty grades are due no later than 72 hours after the published exam time, for each of their courses whether they give a final during that exam time or end date of the course. Grades received after 3 p.m. on December 22, 2020 may not be available until after the Christmas Holiday.

When can I begin entering grades for Fall 2020?

WebAdvisor grading will open for all undergraduate and graduate Fall 2020 courses on December 7, 2020. Faculty should not submit grades until the published end date of the course, or final exam, has passed. If grades are submitted early, the assumption is that the course has concluded for the semester and will require that the department to amend the end date of the course with the Records Office. Please note that this amendment can result in inaccurate internal and external reporting, and could result in changes to student aid.

Do I need to submit all of my grades for all students in the class at one time?

No. Faculty can enter grades for students in a class at different times. However, after a grade has been submitted for a student, it cannot be changed unless you submit the Initial Grade Assignment/Change of Grade e-form.

When will WebAdvisor grading close?

All grades are due on Monday, January 4, 2021 at noon.

When is the latest date an Incomplete can be scheduled without the school Dean's approval?

The latest date is February 1, 2021 for undergraduate student. For graduate students, incomplete grade completion dates more than two weeks after the end of the semester require the Dean's approval.

Will students be able to select the Pass/No Credit option for Fall 2020 classes?

No. Loyola will not be offering the Pass/No Credit (P/NC) option for any students for the Fall 2020 semester.
