ATTN: STUDENTS IN SPRING 2021 FULL-TERM COURSES
RE: SPRING 2021 LAST DAY OF CLASSES (INSTRUCTORS)
This e-mail is being sent as a courtesy reminder, and is a highlight of an important date in the Spring 2021 Academic Calendar (below). Today is the LAST DAY OF CLASSES (full-term courses) and we want to remind you of a couple items.
The four study days for this semester begin tomorrow, Saturday, May 1st through Tuesday, May 4th
FINAL EXAMS (UNDERGRADUATES)
--> The Final Exam period begins Wednesday, May 5th - Wednesday, May 12th
--> Final Exam Info: https://registrar.rice.edu/students/final_exams
FINAL GRADE ROSTERS (with Grade Entry PINs):
A unique, system-generated e-mail will very soon be sent to each Spring 2021 instructor, to their official Rice e-mail address. The e-mail will contain the necessary CRN (Course Reference Number) and Grade Entry PIN for online grade submission in ESTHER.
Please remember that a few years ago the grade entry rosters in ESTHER were consolidated and enhanced.
- There are no longer two separate final grade entry rosters (Degree Candidate and Non-Degree Candidate). All students in your course now appear on a single “Final Grades – All Students.” Inside that roster, you will see the groups separated by Degree Candidates and Non-Degree Candidates.
- You can now submit grades for individual students rather than having to wait to have all grades for all students before submitting. Once a grade has been submitted, the student will disappear from the roster.
- At any time during grade entry, you can view the grades you have submitted for that roster by clicking “View All Submitted Grades in PDF.”
For grade entry assistance, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
FINAL GRADE SUBMISSION DEADLINES
—> for Degree Candidates: deadline, Friday May 14th
—> for Continuing Students: deadline, Friday May 21st
We wish you the best as you bring the Spring 2021 semester to a close.
