Releasing Final Grades in D2L

By default, D2L does not automatically display final grades to students; they only see their scores on individual assignments, not their cumulative grade for the course. At the end of the term, you can opt to release the final grade so that students can view it.

Note: Final grades in eLearning/D2L are not automatically transferred to WebAdvisor (Colleague). You must manually enter a midterm grade or final grade in WebAdvisor at the end of the semester.
