This policy was put in place to ensure that students have prompt feedback and knowledge of their course progress.Resources for Using the New Webcourses@UCF GradebookUCF plans to roll over to the new Gradebook for all courses before Summer 2019. We anticipate that Canvas will stop supporting the old gradebook end of quarter, July 2019, so we want everyone to be moved over before that point so you do not have to face your gradebook changing mid-term. If you wish to start using the new Webcourses@UCF Gradebook, please review the Semester Startup Guide for directions on how to activate it.
