Update on Midyear Grade Report Form

We write to thank the many students who have begun reporting their midyear grades to us. We apologize for any confusion that our form may have created.

Unfortunately, we've discovered a minor glitch. For students with courses in progress or students who are adding courses, the form is requiring grades. If this situation applies to you, please select "pass" as your grade and type "course in progress" in the explanation box below your grade.

Many of you who have started entering your grades have posted some excellent questions. We hope that these answers will help you; if not, please let us know.

For those of you with numeric grades, simply enter the equivalent letter grade for each course based on your own school’s grading scale. In addition, please enter the actual grade that you earned in the explanation box beneath your grade. Note: If your school does not use pluses or minuses, it is not necessary to attempt to calculate this notation.

For security purposes, you are required to update your password every 3 months. If it has been this long since you created your Guest ID, you must update your password before you may access your account and enter your grades.

If you worked as a Teacher's Aide or took an equivalent non-graded course, please simply type "pass" for your grade and then enter explanatory text in the box below your grade such as "Served as Teacher's Aide."

If you have entered your grades, please note that you must select “certify” to complete this task. If you intend to return to the form, please select “save and return.” If you have inadvertently completed this task but wish to update your grades before February 19, please contact us and we will make the form available again in your To-do list.

As a reminder, all second-deadline candidates are required to submit their first-semester or first-trimester grades using this form, as are all first-deadline candidates who have been admitted or deferred.

If you have any questions, please email us at or call us at 919-966-3621 during our working hours of Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern Time.
