How does the student complete the coursework after receiving an incomplete "I" grade?
The faculty member and student must engage in a contract that outlines the coursework to be completed. A final grade is assigned once the
agreed-upon coursework has been completed and evaluated. The coursework must be completed
and submitted to the instructor within one calendar year following the end of the
semester in which the "I" grade was assigned. Students who receive an "I" grade cannot re-enroll or audit the same
course in a future term.
Why can't I assign a grade of Incomplete to a student in a Cr/NC class or status?
Why doesn't WebGrades function properly from my computer's Web browser?
Although WebGrades can run from virtually any computer browser worldwide, there are

your browser is not compatible.
What happens if my WebGrades account is locked?
WebGrades has security technology to deactivate an account after a series of successive
incorrect login attempts. Should your account become locked, please contact your department

SDSU WebPortal accounts are automatically created for faculty during the hiring process. Faculty
should refer to their department coordinator to obtain a temporary SDSU WebPortal
password. Staff members needing SDSU WebPortal access must submit a completed SDSU WebPortal Account Request form to their department chair/director for approval and release of a temporary password.
How do I know if I should be using my WebPortal account?
Different access options are available depending on your role. Faculty who need to access WebRosters, Password
Update, WebGrades, Evaluation Results, and WebDrop should have an SDSU WebPortal account.
Staff working with Student Registration, Course Demand, Department WebGrades, Department
WebRosters, Student Grades, ATF, Admissions Reports, and Enrollment Reports should
have an SDSU WebPortal account. Campus advisers (undergraduate and graduate) should
use the SDSU WebPortal to access student degree evaluations.
Your SDSU WebPortal password is a 6-20 digit series of letters or numbers that is
assigned to you by the Office of the Registrar. To change your password, log in to the WebPortal using your current password. Upon
login, select the "Change Password" option on the menu. Follow the steps to create
your new password.
Please review the Academic Calendars for the specific deadline for a faculty member to drop students who fail to attend
the first class session and are not in class at the very beginning of the second class
session. Any student dropped by the instructor during this period will be notified
of the action by e-mail. Students may reenroll in any open seats through the fifth
day of classes. Students who wish to reenroll after the fifth day of classes will
be placed on the wait list.
How can a student be reclassified as a California resident?
To be eligible for resident classification, an adult applicant must have established and maintained permanent residence in California
at least one year prior to the residence determination date. Residency determination
of minor students and applicants is based on the residency status of their parents.
Proof of residence requires evidence of both physical presence and intent to remain
indefinitely in California at least one year before the residence determination date.
In addition, other rules and exceptions apply. For detailed information about determining
your residence status for fee purposes, see the General Catalog.
When are students evaluated for residency reclassification?
The residence determination date for fall semesters is September 20. The date for
spring semesters is January 25.
