Releasing final grades in D2L (optional) and PeopleSoft (official)

Final Letter Grades are to be submitted to PeopleSoft’s Faculty Centre and must be approved by the department before they are officially released to students.

The gradebook in D2L is optional.  Should you decide to release students’ unofficial final grades in D2L, please see: How to calculate & release (unofficial) final grades in D2L

3 steps to get your grades from D2L into PeopleSoft

Step 1: Preparing grades in D2L for export to PeopleSoft (PDF)

Step 2: Using the Grade Export Utility to export your grades in the right format for PeopleSoft (PDF)

Step 3: Import formatted grades into PeopleSoft (PDF)

Manual Export (Optional/ Work-around): If you need to manually export your grades because the Grade Export Utility listed in Step 2 is not displaying your course*, or if you are teaching a full-year course, follow these steps to download and format the file before uploading to PeopleSoft: How to manually export your Gradebook

*If your course is not displaying, check to ensure that your D2L site is Active. If it is still not showing, it is likely that the number of sections you have access to has exceeded the limit that the Grade Export Utility can handle.

Recommendation: To avoid errors when uploading the file to PeopleSoft, please keep the file name short.
