Have no fear, electronic grade changes are here! Now you can submit a request to change a student's grade from anywhere in the world at any time you desire - without paper. Simply log-in to ARIESweb and let your mouse do the clicking (ok, there's a little typing involved as well). The grade change request will automatically be routed to your department chair (or, if you happen to be the department chair, to your college dean) for their electronic approval. Once approved, the request is routed to the Registrar's Office where we will update the student's grade. Both the instructor and the student will be notified of the grade change. Join us for this PDI session and learn how to navigate this new wiz-bang tool!
