Final grades for the fall 2020 semester will be available in NEST beginning Thursday, December 17, 2020 at 3 p.m. If you see a blank grade, that means the instructor has not entered it. GPAs will be calculated on Monday, January 4, 2021.

Blank Grades

Some grades may take longer to appear, up until Monday, January 4. Any grade not submitted by Monday, January 4 will receive an NR-Not Reported. Please contact your instructor to have your grade submitted/updated.
