1. How and when will I receive my grades?

SJSU does not mail grades, they will be available with academic standing within 2-3 weeks after the end of the term. For specific dates, see the calendar on the Registrar's website. Access your grades via MySJSU (SJSU ID and Password required).

2. The semester has ended and my friends can view their grades. My professor said he has already entered his grades, but I cannot see it yet online. When will my grade be available online?

Your instructor must enter the grades, approve the grade roster and it will be posted by the Registrar's Office by the grade deadline. It may take two to three weeks after the end of a term for grades to be finalized and viewable. If it has been at least three weeks and your grade is not viewable, contact your professor.

3. An incorrect grade was assigned to me, what do I need to do?

Immediately contact the instructor or the department chair if instructor is unavailable) to submit a Change of Grade Form to the Registrar's Office.

4. My professor told me to come to the Student Services Center to get a change of grade form. Where can I get one?

Your professor should contact his/her department's administrative assistant for Change of Grade form. Only authorized staff and faculty may handle change of grade forms. Students are not allowed to handle them, it will be void when submitted by students.

5. What is an "IC" grade and how does it affect my record?
"IC" stands for Incomplete Charged after failure to complete the assigned work within the established calendar year period for an “I” grade.  The "IC" replaces the "I" and it calculates as a failing grade for Grade Point Average(GPA) and progress point computation.

6. What is an "RD" grade and what do I need to do?
"RD" stands for Report Delayed, assigned by the Registrar's Office when grades are not submitted. Student should contact the instructor/department of the course to submit a Change of Grade Form as soon as possible.

7. Why do I have "W" grades on my record?
"W" stands for Withdrawal, which indicates that the student was permitted to withdraw from the course after the drop deadline for the term.  It carries no connotation of quality of student performance and is not used in calculating grade point average or progress points.

8. How can I get a printed copy of my grades?

We do not provide a printed copy of grades. To see your grades, go to your MySJSU and view your grades. If you need a printed copy of your grades, you may order an official transcript.

9. My retroactive course drop/semester withdrawal has been approved but my academic standing is still incorrect. Is there anything I need to do to have it changed?

Eventhough your GPA has changed due to the retroactive course drop/semester withdrawal, your academic standing will remain for that semester. You can not do anything to have it changed.

10. My degree has been posted but there's an error on my transcript, how can it be fixed?

After a degree has been posted, no further adjustments can be made on the record except under extraordinary circumstances as determined by Graduate or Undergraduate Studies.
