Grading

Grade Submission:

For Fall and Spring semesters only.

Grades must be entered by the primary instructor via MyUH Services or Laulima for all students appearing on their class lists by 4:00 p.m. (HST) on the Tuesday following the final exam period.  Starting immediately after the deadline, grades will be rolled to academic history.  Once a grade has been rolled, it is viewable by students in STAR GPS and may no longer be changed online.

Official grades are submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the end of each term by the deadlines noted below.

The Request to Assign Proxy for Entry of Grades form is available online with the Office of the University Scheduler.  Completed forms can be submitted to the University Scheduler at Krauss Hall, Room 121.

Instructional faculty who are not able to meet the deadline must contact their department for an extension.  The Department Chairperson will contact the Office of the Registrar for final approval.

If you have no record of a student participating in an academically related event, you must submit a grade (F or NC) and enter the Last Date of Participation as the day prior to the first day of the semester in MyUH Services. If a student participated in at least one academically related event, but then ceased to participate without officially withdrawing from your course, you must submit a grade based on the student’s completed coursework.  You may not enter a grade of W.  If a grade of F or NC is assigned, a Last Date of Participation must also be entered.

The available grades for each individual student are based on the student’s grading option.  The A-F grading option is the default grading option for all courses unless a course is designated as mandatory CR/NC.  If a course offers more than one grading option, students may select one of these options while registering.   A grade based on the current grade option is to be entered.

A Last Date of Participation is required for students who are assigned a grade of F, IF, NC, or INC.  For detailed instructions, visit Last Date of Participation.

An incomplete or I grade may be assigned to a student who has not completed a small but important part of the semester’s coursework or if the instructor determines that the incomplete was caused by conditions beyond the student’s control.  Students are responsible for requesting a grade of I for a course. When assigning a grade of I a written agreement with the student is highly recommended.  The agreement should include the coursework to be completed along with a deadline.

A grade of I must be accompanied with a grade that will replace the I if the work is not completed.  For example, if the student is to receive a grade of C if no further work is completed, the grade IC is to be assigned by the instructor.

The I grade automatically converts to the replacement grade if a Change of Grade form is not submitted to the Office of the Registrar by these deadlines:

  • Fall semester incompletes – April 1
  • Spring semester incompletes – November 1

Students who have a grade of I for the semester (at the time of the recording of the Dean’s List designation) are not eligible to be recognized for the Dean’s List.

Students are not eligible for graduation if there are any I grades on their record.
