E-Grades Submission Information
This page is specific for Carnegie Mellon faculty, teaching instructors and department grading proxies.
The following is a list of dates and some general information you will find useful when entering your Fall 2013 Final and Mini-2 Grades via the Electronic Grade Web Submission Process through Faculty Information Online (FIO).
Please keep in mind that plus and minus grades for undergraduates are only accepted during mid-semester grading periods. Plus and minus grades will not be accepted for undergraduate students during final grading periods.
**REMINDER: Your email confirmation no longer contains the actual grade(s) you submitted. It only contains the student's computer ID, last name, first name, course number and course section.
Course grades that are entered each day will not automatically be included in a student's semester or cumulative QPA. QPA calculations run nightly until the egrade application is turned off. Cumulative QPA calculations are run the evening of the grade deadline.
**IMPORTANT CHANGE: As of Fall 2011, the University Registrar's Office will no longer print any departmental grade reports. You can now run and print your own departmental grade reports using the Student Data Warehouse (SDW). If requested, we will copy the grade report job onto your SDW account. Then, you can customize and run the report job at the end of the grading period(s). If you wish to have the grade report job copied onto your SDW account, please send email to email@example.com by 5 p.m., Tuesday, December 17, 2013.
Due to the fact that students' are not final until 8 a.m., December 20, do not run your graduating grade report(s) until after 9 a.m. that morning. This will ensure you receive the most updated departmental grade reports.
Should you have difficulty running your report(s) or if you do not have access to the Student Data Warehouse, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to call Mary Ann Moyer at 268-1941 or Kathy Sloan at 268-1949. You may also send email to email@example.com.

ACCESSING THE WEBSITE
The Faculty Information Online URL is: https://acis.as.cmu.edu/fio. If you forget the 's' in the address, you will be denied access.
If someone other than yourself must submit your grades, they will need to be set up as a proxy through Enrollment Services. Only the instructor of record, assistant or associate department head, and the associate dean are permitted to register a proxy. Let your proxies know they must have an active Andrew account to be registered. If they do not have an active Andrew account, please have them contact Computing Services at 412-268-4357. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your proxy. In your email message, please provide us with the proxy name, proxy Andrew user ID, course number, course section, semester, and who gives authorization.
