Spring 2020 Grading Deadlines

****All courses for Spring 2020 will be graded Pass/No Credit. Please only enter grades of P/NC for final grades. ****
As a way to augment P/NC grading, it is strongly encouraged to use RISD’s system of grade narratives as a supplemental means to provide students with a more in-depth understanding of performance/achievement in the course.

There are different grade deadlines during Spring to accommodate the time-sensitive review of degree requirement completion for the graduating class.

Instructors are asked to submit their grades electronically via WebAdvisor, the online web student information system. Instructions for WebAdvisor grading is available on this website or by contacting registrar@risd.edu with questions.

Final Grade Submission Deadlines:
-Thursday May 14 for Brown University graduating students
-Wednesday May 20 for RISD|Brown Dual Degree graduating students
-Tuesday May 26 by NOON for RISD Seniors & Graduating Graduate Level Students
-Monday June 1 for Non-graduating Students*

*Who are your graduating students?
Login to WebAdvisor and view your grade roster.  Students identified as 06/20 in the column labeled Anticipated Compl.Date. are graduating students. Faculty with graduating Brown University students will be contacted directly with the names of those students.

Faculty Evaluating Students:
Final Evaluations of Student Progress/Performance due June 9th and are strongly encouraged to augment P/NC grading.
Instructors enter final evaluation narratives on WebAdvisor. A short instructional video is available for the online evaluation feature.  Further details on final evaluation narratives are available here.

New Electronic Forms Available


The Registrar’s Office is excited to announce the first of many electronic forms available for completion and submission by students.

The Address Change form and the Student Information Release (aka the FERPA waiver) form are now available for submission through etrieve, RISD’s new electronic form system.

The etrieve system requires login with your RISD credentials to verify your identity and allow certain fields in the form to be pre-populated. On submission, the form travels along an established workflow notifying each person and the submitter upon completion.

This new system will provide the opportunity to improve efficiency and accuracy for many of our processes.

To access etrieve guide: Documentation and Training Materials
To access etrieve directly, visit: etcentral.risd.edu

More forms will be rolled out in the following months – stay tuned!
