Grades and Grade Point Average Calculation

How soon after the term will I get my grades?

Grades will be posted to a student’s BANNER WEB Account no later than 3 Business days after the last day of final exams. Grades are not mailed to the student’s residence. Students are responsible for accessing their BANNER WEB Account to review their grades at that time and to challenge them if they do not agree with a grade they received for a course.

Can I call the Office of the Registrar and ask for my grades by phone?

No. For security and confidentiality reasons, no grades may be released to any party by phone. Students may request a copy of the grades by submitting a Transcript Request Form to the Office of the Registrar. Or log in to their Banner Web Account, select the Student Menu and check their final grades, academic standing and cumulative GPA.

How can I be sure how well I am doing in my course(s)?

Students should talk with instructor(s) about their progress and seek help early to improve their grades on class room assignments. Early intervention grade reports are e-mailed to students experiencing academic difficulty before the midterm of each semester by the Vice President for Academic Affairs. If at the end of the semester students are no longer on Good Standing, the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs will send an Academic Standing letter to them. To maintain Good Standing, students must earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.

I do not agree with the grade I received in a particular class. Who do I consult?

Students questioning a grade assigned to them in a particular class must contact the faculty instructor who taught that class. If the faculty instructor is unavailable, the student may contact the division office under which that class is taught. If students need further assistance, consult the current EGSC catalog for challenging grade procedures.

How do I remove an ‘I’ (Incomplete) grade from my record?

An ‘I’ grade indicates the student was passing the course, but for non-academic reasons beyond their control, was unable to meet the full requirements of the course.  To remove this grade the student must satisfy the instructor's remaining requirements. He/she will calculate the student’s final class grade, complete a Grade Change Form and submit it to the Office of the Registrar for processing the change.  Once processed the GPA will be recalculated and reflected on the student’s academic record.  Only grades of A, B, C, D or F or WF affect the GPA.  An ‘I’ is expected to be satisfied by the end of the student’s next semester of enrollment.  Without regard to enrollment, an ‘I’ must be removed within one calendar year.  If the student does not complete their course requirements, the ‘I’ will convert to an ‘F’. Students Do not repeat a course for which they received an ‘I’.

How do I check my grades via BANNER web?

Students log into their  myEGSC Account, click on the BannerWeb icon, select the Student Services tab, click on Student Records Information Menu and then select Final Grades or check their transcript to verify grades, academic standing, and cumulative GPA.

How do I obtain myEGSC password?

Your initial myEGSC password is the last four digits of your social security number followed by the last two digits of the year you were born. Example: SSN #: ***-**-1234   Birthdate: 04/01/1993    Password = 123493
