Closing your Course
Closing your Course in Learn
Courses close in the Learn LMS (learning management system) at the end of the academic term in which they ran, by default. This date comes hard-coded from Banner, i.e., it cannot be changed (by Policy) on the Banner side. However, if it is OK with your Program, Department, School or College – you can change the course close date in Learn, yourself.
- Log in to your course in the Learn LMS
- Make sure that you are in Edit mode (This is a toggle at the top right of your screen)
- In the left hand menu, click on Customization (This is near the bottom left)
- Click on Properties
- In segment #3 of the Properties window, look for the End Date selection area.
- Enter the date on which you want this course to close, for students
- Press the Submit button.
Your course will now become unavailable, i.e., preventing student access, at midnight, 11:59pm, on the date you entered and submitted.

Banner Grading System
Key Points to Remember
The Banner web grading system will be disabled at 12 noon on Wednesday, after final exams. So you will not be able to enter any grades after that point.
Final grades can be entered for the via the DrexelOne portal.
Please be advised that degree candidates are noted with a red check mark next to their name on your official class lists in Banner web via the portal. Non-Degree candidates will have no check mark next to their name.
If grades for degree candidates are not submitted on time, their eligibility to receive their degree will be compromised. Once submitted, instructors should also verify that the submitted grades have been rolled to academic history by verifying the system after the grades have been submitted. In addition it is encouraged that instructors print a copy of the grades (once they have been submitted) for future reference.
For help in submitting your grades, review the Faculty Guide to Grade Submission.
If using the DrexelOne portal and the electronic grade submission process are new to you, please access the DrexelOne portal prior to the grade submission deadline—to ensure that you have access to your course class list. This will help you familiarize yourself with the system and address any questions or concerns well before the deadline date. This is particularly important to do well before the end of the term.
