Ensure grade rosters are available for instructors on time

Final grade rosters are automatically created for classes based on the End Date entered on the Meeting Patterns tab in Collaborative Class Scheduling (CCS). The End Date defaults to be the last day of the term session in which the class is scheduled, but can be adjusted if appropriate.

If your department offers classes that do not run the full length of the term session, it’s important the CCS scheduler adjust the End Date on the Meeting Patterns tab to be the actual last day of the class. By doing so, the grade roster is created on time, about a week prior to the last day of class. Once created, the grade roster is immediately available to the instructor and/or proxies in the Faculty Center for completion and submission.

New UPK Topics for ECAS

We now have a variety of Electronic Course Authorization System (ECAS) self-help topics published to our Quick Start Guides page and ready for you to “See it!, Try it! or Print it!” These topics will prove useful as you navigate ECAS, make changes to courses, and submit course proposals. More topics will be published soon.

These are the newest ECAS topics:

Please note, the ECAS Manual is still available for reference on the ECAS home page, but is no longer being revised, as it is being replaced with the UPK topics.
