Grade Entry and Modifications
Failing Grades and Last Date of Attendance:
Effective Fall 2019, the University grading system incorporated the grades of FNA (Failure Non-Attendance) and FSA (Failure Stopped Attending) to accompany the grade of F (Failure) in order to adhere to federal regulations and to accurately determine financial aid eligibility.
If a student failed a course because they stopped attending, the student should receive the FSA grade and the instructor is required to enter the last date of attendance. If the attendance date is unknown, please enter the date the student last submitted any course work. If a student has never attended a course, instructors should enter the FNA grade. If a student has legitimately earned the failing grade in a course, the instructor should enter the F grade. Please note that the grades of FNA and F do not require a last date of attendance when submitting grades.

You can also use GradeSync to submit grades from your eCampus course. GradeSync is
a tool that allows instructors to submit grades from a Grade Center column in eCampus
to STAR, without having to manually enter grades for each student. Instructions
are available on eCampus Information website at
