Important Notes

  • Failing grades: Any student that receives a grade of F must have a date entered in the Last Date of Attendance column. This is the last date of an academic submission.
  • Incomplete grades: If the instructor has submitted the required paperwork to the Office of Registration and Records to give the student a grade of Incomplete, the grade in ILP should be left blank to prevent overriding the Incomplete grade assigned by the Registrar.
  • Learning support classes require an asterisk (*) after the letter in the Final Grade column.  Learning support instructors will manually enter the asterisk after each letter grade.  (Ex: A*)
  • Work Ethics Grades: Courses that include a Work Ethics Grade require a number after the letter in the Final Grade column.  Separate the letter and number with one space.  Instructors will manually enter the number after each letter grade. (Ex: A 1)
  • Assistance: If you are unable to push your grades, please submit a CTL Support Request.
