What are the guidelines for posting grades?

Social Security numbers may not be used to post grades, either in hard copy or electronically. Instructors may not publicly display a student’s Penn ID or any portion of the Social Security number, nor use name, initials, or any personally identifiable information to post grades. Even when an identifier is masked or absent, grades may not be posted in alphabetical order, to protect student privacy.

What are the procedures for grade changes?

Grade changes are initiated by the faculty by completing the Change of Grade form. All grade changes must be approved by the respective School Office. Changes are posted by the Registrar’s Office after receipt of the approved grade change notice from the School.
