If you encounter problems with the Web Grades system, please contact the Student Records Training Team at 612-625-2803 or


Before "exporting" from an Excel spreadsheet, you will need to have created a file that has only the required information: student ID numbers and corresponding letter grades.

To save that file in the proper format:

  1. From the "File" menu, choose "Save As..."
  2. Set the file format by choosing "Text (comma separated value)" from the drop down menu in the "Format" field (Mac OS) or the "Save as type" field (Windows)
  3. Name the file and save it in a location you can readily find later. You might consider naming the file using the class alias and placing it on your desktop to make it easy to locate the appropriate file during the upload process
