Using CSV on a Mac for grading?
If you are exporting a CSV from Excel on a Mac, please choose “Windows Comma Separated (.csv)” for the format. Fore more information, see the guide for Importing from a Spreadsheet.
Please submit grades on time. Financial aid, honors, probation, and clearance for graduation may be adversely affected for students whose grades are submitted late.
When entering final grades from a location in a time zone other than PST, please be aware of how the time difference may impact you.

Instructors who use the bCourses Assignments and Grading tools can export students’ final grades from bCourses directly into the format required by CalCentral. A bCourses help document includes step-by-step directions.
As an instructor you may delegate authority for entering (but not approving) grades to a GSI, a head GSI or a departmental staff member. This is a two-step process.
- Add the Proxy to the Instructor/Adviser Table: Before proxies may be assigned to enter grades for a given class, they must be added to the Instructor/Adviser Table in the new system. If the proxy is a GSI, they are already in this table. If the proxy is a department staff member, they need to be added to the table by the Registrar’s Office. This is a one-time action. Please send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Add the Proxy to the Class: Once the person being assigned proxy power is added to the Instructor/Adviser table, they are ready to be attached to a class. The departmental class scheduler needs to assign the 5-PROXY code to the instructor’s choice. Those who are assigned the 5-PROXY code, may enter grades on behalf of the instructor in the primary section, but they may not approve them.
