Requesting a Grade Change in KSIS


How to request a grade change in KSIS.



Instructors can use the Request Grade Change process in KSIS to update or change a grade.  The grade change option is available in the KSIS roster at 8 a.m. the day AFTER grades have been posted for the semester.  Grades can be changed for up to five years after the original grade posting.

Note: Currently grade rosters only go back to 2008 when K-State implemented KSIS for student grades.

Any grade change not accommodated by the online method in KSIS is done by submitting a Grade Change Memorandum to the Registrar's Office if one of the following conditions are met.

  • The instructor is no longer employed with KSU and cannot make the changes in KSIS
  • The course was taken prior to Fall 2008 and grade roster not available in KSIS
  • The student has graduated
  • The student did not appear on the grade roster
  • If the grade is a W or XF


  • Faculty
  • Staff
