Accessing & Understanding Grades

Accessing my.SDSU

To access grades, you must log into my.SDSU using your SDSUid. If you have not activated your my.SDSU account or if you are unable to log in, contact the Information Technology User Services (ITUS) Help Desk.

Explanation of Grades

To determine what each grade means, review the Explanation of Grades web page.

Credit/No Credit Grades

Credit/No Credit grades can only be submitted if the student submits a request to change the grading basis to Credit/No Credit by the schedule adjustment deadline. We are modifying this process as we transition to my.SDSU. Please reference the Credit/No Credit page to understand how these grades will appear in my.SDSU. A Credit/No Credit course will appear as a “CR” if the student has gotten credit or an “NC” if the student has not received credit for the course.

Late Grades

Students who are not assigned grades by the grade submission deadline will be assigned "RD" grades and will be instructed to contact the instructor. It is extremely important to submit grades by the deadline, because late grades affect a student's academic status and may result in the student being disqualified from the university. Additionally, graduation for the current semester (including summer) cannot be completed until grades are posted.

Information for Faculty

Entering and Submitting Grades

All grades must be submitted by the grade submission deadline listed on the Academic Calendar for each semester (deadlines for summer sessions and Global Campus sessions may vary). You may submit a portion of the grades and return later to submit the remaining grades during the grade submission period. If any students are not assigned grades by the deadline, the students will be assigned "RD" grades and will be instructed to contact the instructor.

Grades can be entered directly into the Grade Roster page for each class. Follow these steps to enter grades in my.SDSU:
