Here is a table to help you determine how to handle inactive (dropped) students:

Drop Date Required Action
Before Census (12th Class) Date No action is required. The student is removed from the site. A grade will not be submitted for the student.
After Census (12th Class Date) and before University Registrar's drop deadline No action is required. The student is removed from the site. The student will automatically be assigned an appropriate grade in the Banner System and you will see this reflected in your Grade Submission Receipt.
After University Registrar's drop deadline An appropriate drop grade will need to be assigned to the student in the Grade Override column of Gradebook. This will be the grade submitted to Banner for the student. Please watch this video to learn how to perform a grade override in Gradebook.
