Faculty & Staff

  • Grades

    When submitting grades remember — you can post grades without having all grades for your class entered.

    To submit a grade for an incomplete (Z) or deferred grade (R), please fill out the Report of Incomplete or Deferred Grade form so the Registrar’s Office can post the grade in PeopleSoft.

    For unsatisfactory grades, use the Report of Unsatisfactory Grade form.

    If an incorrect grade was posted, either due to a data entry or calculation error, the Grade Change form must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office by the last day of the full term following the term in which the course was taken.

    No change in grade may be made on the basis of retesting or work completed after a grade has been submitted other than in the case of an official incomplete.

  • Curricular Procedures

    Already familiar with procedures and guidelines? Here's the Course form to submit a new or revised course for review.

    Every year, the Registrar's Office assists the Committee on Educational Affairs (CEA) and the Calendar and Schedule Committee (CSC) in the process of establishing course offerings and the schedule for the upcoming academic year.

    Things to consider:

    • Are there courses that need to be removed from the catalog?
    • Are there any minor revisions to currently offered courses?
    • Curricular additions and major revisions are reviewed by the CEA.
    • Class schedules are reviewed by the CSC.

    Procedures can change, please be sure to visit the CEA and the CSC websites annually for information about the process and deadlines.

  • Division of the Day

    Williams College has reserved these hours for academic courses:

    • 8:00 am - 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday
    • 7:00 pm - 9:40 pm, Monday and Wednesday

    All extracurricular activities should be scheduled outside these hours.

    This rule, which is overseen by the Calendar and Schedule Committee (CSC), is called the "Division of the Day." The CSC needs to approve mid-semester evening exam times, as well as be informed of field trips and other exceptions to the Division of the Day.

    Please refer to the Calendar and Schedule Committee website for more information.

  • Campus Name

    Students may choose to be known on campus by a name other than their legal name. Read more about the Campus Name policy for students.

    If you are making travel arrangements on behalf of a student, it's important to ask for their legal name.
