RE:  Final Grades and Attendance Verification  

As the Fall 2020 semester is coming to a close, this is a reminder that all fall grades must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. The timely submission of grades ensures the accurate updating of academic records.  Failure to submit grades by the deadline impacts important processes such as degree clearance, academic standing calculation, and satisfactory academic progress for Financial Aid.

Final Grade entry will be closed in Genie at 5:00pm, on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.  After this, grading for the semester will be closed and grades that have not been entered will be automatically marked as NR (Not Reported).  To update the NR placeholder with the final grade, instructors will need to issue a grade change beginning Wednesday, December 9, 2020 at 12 p.m. in Genie for each student where the grade was not reported by the deadline.

Please note that instructors are required to enter the last date of attendance and/or last date of academic activity when assigning F (failing) or I (incomplete) grades. In order to be in compliance with Federal Regulations, UNCG is required to document the last date of attendance or academic activity for students who received Federal Financial Aid Funds. Verification of the last date of attendance or academic activity must be available for review by the U.S. Department of Education.

Step-by-step instructions for inputting the last date of attendance can be found at

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in submitting all Fall 2020 grades by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
