Submitting Grades

Faculty enter grades online for the fall, spring, and summer terms by going to SIS. If you are not familiar with SIS, follow this web-based tutorial.

Quick Guide

  1. Open a web browser and go to https://sis.jhu.edu/sswf/
  2. Click Sign In
    You should see your course(s) listed with the option to Import from Excel or from Blackboard

  3. To import from Excel, you simply need an Excel document that has two columns: a) ID, b) Grade
    Here is an example using sample data from the downloaded roster:

    To import from Blackboard, click on Blackboard under grade import, then select your Final Grade column in Blackboard. This will typically be the column titled Final Grade.If you have duplicate final grade columns, you will want to remove them or rename them to avoid confusion.

At the end of each term, instructors are required to submit grades to the university registrar through the SIS system so that they are received within 72 hours of the last scheduled meeting of the class.

Please contact the Johns Hopkins Engineering Registration Office at jhep@jhu.edu if you cannot meet that deadline. Faculty using Blackboard may import grades directly into SIS. Use your JHED login and password to log into SIS. For further information about submitting grades, requesting a grade change request, or requesting a grader for your course, view our guidelines​.
