Faculty must submit final grades electronically, through MyUCLA Gradebook or Gradebook Express, by the published deadline.
The instructor in charge of a course is responsible for determining the grade of each student in the course. The standards for evaluating student performance is based on the course description as approved by the appropriate course committee.
With MyUCLA Gradebook, instructors can manage their classes throughout the term and submit final grades. If they only want to submit final grades, they can use Gradebook Express. Both applications allow instructors to set up TAs or other assistants to help them enter grades, but only the faculty member in charge of a class can submit final grades.
To access MyUCLA Gradebook or Gradebook Express, instructors use their UCLA Logon ID and password. To reset a forgotten password, see the identity and accounts manager.
For assistance with Gradebook Express, a help guide is available.
If the electronic grade submission deadline is missed, the Registrar’s Office sends the instructor of record an email notification identifying the affected course(s). In addition, a report of non-graded courses for the term is sent to the administering department. Beginning two days after the deadline has passed, instructors should use the Late Final Grades section of the Gradebook feature on MyUCLA to report previously unsubmitted grades on a student-by-student basis. Alternatively, instructors can use standard UCLA Report of Academic Revision forms to report late grades. A separate form must be used for each student.
After the deadline, until final grades are received and recorded by the Registrar’s Office, a student’s transcript shows an NR (No Report) grade for the class.
Special sessions have different final grade submission deadlines. Programs and instructors receive separate notification of deadlines for these sessions.
