Final Grading Information for Spring 2015
Final grades for the Spring term will be available for students in ISIS on or before May 15. For assistance on how to view your grades please click on the link below. Students are reminded that “I” and “X” grades from the Fall or Winter 2014 semesters that have not been cleared will be turned to “F” grades. Please contact the instructor of your class to have a grade submitted via a grade change form. No grade reports are sent to students via hard copy. Official transcripts can be requested in your ISIS Student Center, from the other academic drop down menu choose – TRANSCRIPT: REQUEST OFFICIAL.
Dismissal, Academic Probation Instructions and Procedures
Once final grades are posted, those students who fail to meet the good academic standing criteria are subject to probation or dismissal from the institution. The relevant academic policies and information may be found at the following links:
Students are required to view their grades via the ISIS/PeopleSoft application. Failure to review grades via ISIS/PeopleSoft is not considered to be a reason for appeal of dismissal from the institution. Failure to have a current and accurate address on file in the Office of the Registrar is also not considered to be reason for an appeal of dismissal from the institution.
Students who are dismissed from the institution are sent a certified letter and an email of dismissal from the Office of the Registrar. These letters will be mailed to students the week of May 18, 2015. Students have the right to appeal. Appeals are due in the Office of the Registrar no later than May 27, 2015. Letters of appeals should be emailed as well as a hard copy sent to the Office of the Registrar.
Students who have an “I” or “X” grade are evaluated for academic standing and are still eligible for probation or dismissal based upon the remaining grades posted to their record.

New Transfer Course Equivalency Tool

Prior to coming to the Office of the Registrar to complete a Prior Approval form, use this tool to determine what the Bloomsburg Equivalency will be.
Always meet with your academic advisor for specific information concerning transfer courses and their application to your degree requirements.
Late Withdrawal Information
The option to withdraw from a course in ISIS for the Spring 2015 term has now passed. Friday, April 3rd was the last day for a course withdrawal.
According to PRP 3462 Undergraduate Course Withdrawal Policy:
No withdrawals will be permitted after the end of the tenth week of the semester.
Prior to the last week of classes, in exceptional circumstances, for compelling, justified and documented reasons, the Dean of the College in which the course is being taught may waive these restrictions. Poor academic performance will not constitute grounds for late withdrawal. Please see the Office of the Registrar regarding this policy.
If you wish to withdraw from the university completely you have until Monday, May 4 to go to the Office of the Registrar and fill out the University/Term Withdrawal form.
