Winter Quarter Grades Due by March 24

Winter Quarter grades are due in Student Academic Services (SAS) by 4:30 p.m., Thursday, March 24. Grades may be submitted to SAS via the Web; in person; placed in the SAS drop box (located outside of Demaray Hall 151); mailed; or faxed to (206) 281-2669 (with the original mailed or submitted as soon as possible). Timely submission of grades helps students and offices with important registration processes, such as the academic dismissal process, disbursing financial aid, and processing enrollment verifications. If instructors want grades to appear on the Web before March 24, they need to contact SAS to roll the grades to academic history. If there are challenges when grading students, please contact SAS PRIOR to the grading deadline - we may be able to assist with resolving the situation. (For example, if the course is set up with an incorrect grading mode, SAS can fix it prior to the grade deadline). If you have questions concerning grading or meeting the University deadline, contact Kelli Knapp at (206) 281-2636.
