You may give the following overrides on the Faculty tab of 1600grand by clicking the Grant Override button under the Registration Overrides header. They have different purposes:
During registration for the upcoming semester only (the 2-week defined registration period in fall for spring or in spring for fall):
|Permission of Instructor Req||If your course requires permission of the instructor, use this override.|
|Prerequisite/Corequisite Okay||This override will allow the student to register even without the prerequisite(s).|
|Day/Time Conflict Okay||This override will allow a student to register in your course even with a day/time conflict.|
|Approved from Wait List||If your course has previously closed, but a seat has opened and you have a wait list, you can use this to permit a student to register. They must still add the course themselves.|
The Add Okay (start of term) override is available for entry by the instructor approximately 1-week after the registration period defined above. This override includes those listed above and must be re-entered for use at the start of the term (start of the drop/add period).
|Add Okay (start of term)||This override will allow the student to register in your course at the start of the term (start of the drop/add period). This override includes: permission of instructor, prereq/coreq, day/time conflict.|
When are final and midterm grades due?
Refer to the Academic Calendar. You will also receive reminders via email (to your @macalester.edu) and posted in the Mac Daily.
How do I change a grade?
You may not change the grade through 1600grand. Instead, submit the grade change request by e-mail to the Registrar’s Office. The request should include which course, which student, what grade you would like for them to receive and why you would like to change the grade. As mentioned in Macalester’s grade change policy, it is only acceptable to change a grade when correcting a grade calculation error and when a professor locates a student’s work, paper, project, etc. that was previously considered missing.
When is catalog copy due?
Requests for catalog copy are sent out in early November. The Registrar’s Office expects to set a deadline of late February for copy to be entered by departments into Acalog, the college’s catalog publishing system.
How do I add or delete a course from the catalog?
A request to add or delete a course from the catalog should be made in advance to EPAG. Use the course change proposal form and submit that to the Registrar.
When is the schedule for next year due?
We’ll send out a request for the next academic year’s schedule in early December and it will include a more specific deadline, usually at the end of the first week of classes of the spring term.
How do I make changes to the schedule?
The chair should summarize and submit schedule changes to the Registrar’s Office. If you are making changes on the spreadsheet of courses for your department, please highlight those changes for us.
