Faculty Instructions for Submitting Grades

All grades are submitted via The NEST (Banner Self Service)

Log into the NEST and click on the Faculty & Advisors Services tab.

  • The next page will list courses and CRNs (Course Reference Numbers) to which you are assigned as primary instructor.
  • Click on the arrow on the right of the CRN to open the list.
  • Select the course you wish to grade by clicking on it then click Submit.

Now you are ready to add grades!

  • Under the Grade column open the list of possible grades for a student by clicking on the arrow to the right of NONE.
