Grade Change - Faculty Only
To change a grade simply complete the Grade Change Card and forward it to the Registrar's Office for processing. Once the Registrar's Office has received the card it will be processed that same day. All grade changes need to be approved by the Dean of the College in which the course is offered. No Grade Change Card should be allowed in the hands of any student.
Grade Reports are only available for the previous term. To have a grade report sent to you please fill out the Grade Request Form.
As of Fall 2003-04 term you can view your grades through eSIS. You can locate grades by clicking the "Grades" link in your Student Center.
The cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of credits attempted. In the case of repeated courses the record of both the original and repeated course will be retained on the student's transcript, but for purposes of determining the student's GPA, only credits and grade points earned in the last retake of the course will be used.
Credits and grades transferred from other accredited institutions are not used in the computation of the UW-RF grade point average.
To remain in "good standing" the student's cumulative GPA must be 2.0 or above.
