Faculty Member

As a faculty member, GradesFirst respects your time and attention when you use our system. Faculty members are not required to put tons of information into GradesFirst in order to have an impact on student success. Your part of the GradesFirst methodology is to communicate to student services staff which students are in need of assistance.


Student access to the GradesFirst system is designed to appeal to what you, the student, find interesting and useful. The delivery methods of the information are done using tools you use every day. Things like Facebook integration tools and mobile apps mean that you are only a click or touch away from getting the help you need. When you need it and where you need it.

Using GradesFirst, you can quickly and easily request a tutor, contact your professor, or put an item on your calendar. Our tools are designed to help you manage the pressures of college and create a clear path to academic success.

Academic Advisor

Our tools empower the advisor to improve communication with the student, simplify tasks like scheduling appointments, and serve as a monitor of student’s academic progress.


As an administrator you wear many hats on a given day. One of your hats includes reporting on student retention efforts. GradesFirst closed loop system makes it easy for you to access the data you need for reporting.

With GradesFirst you can begin to track change statistics. What is working? What is not working? What difference are you making? GradesFirst continuous monitoring and closed loop system allow you to see successes and failures. Our report tools facilitate decision making. With GradesFirst tools, you have insight into the effectiveness of your programs that have never before been available.


From progress reports to study hall management to tracking assignments of your student-athletes, GradesFirst is designed to streamline tracking student athletes’ academic progress.

GradesFirst improves your ability to spend more time with students rather than creating reports and tallying time logged by athletes in study hall.
