Grade Requests

Do I need my winter 2020 grade?

Graduate students are asking undergraduates for their continued support as they strike for a cost-of-living adjustment and as UC President Napolitano refuses to negotiate with them and reinstate the fired UCSC TAs. TAs and their instructors at UCSB are willing to submit individual grades for students who urgently need them. This chart is to help you decide whether your need is urgent. They will never require you to disclose the reason for your request.

Ask your instructor / professor to tell you your grade (in person or via your UC email)

  • Not on academic probation but scared I will be
  • Need to retake a course immediately but I don’t know if I passed
  • I’m anxious about my grade
  • Graduating in spring and not sure what grade I received

Ask your instructor/professor to submit your grade officially

  • NCAA Athletes
  • Degree-seeking international students
  • On academic probation
  • My financial aid requires review of my grades every quarter
  • Graduating in Winter
  • Need an official transcript or proof of graduation
  • Need to retake a course immediately and know I didn’t pass
  • Need a grade because it’s a prerequisite class
  • I’m anxious about my grade because I don’t think I passed
  • Formerly incarcerated and on probation

Consult with the appropriate office to determine if you need a grade

  • Veterans or those receiving veteran benefits:
    • Communicate with your VA certifying official about the potential no grade. If, despite mitigating circumstances, you need your grade, ask your instructor/professor to submit your grade officially.
  • EAP/Reciprocity students:
    • Consult with the UCSB EAP office or your home university to determine if you need a grade submitted officially

If you do not fall into one of the categories above, support the strike by not asking a striking TA to submit your grade. If you are an undocumented or a transfer student, you do not need a grade unless you fall into one of the categories above. Check ucsb4cola.org for updates.
