Graduation date does not import if batch rows are edited prior to commiting

When importing new constituents, users might notice that the graduation date is missing for records that were edited or interacted with in batch.  This includes changing fields or making choices about duplicate checking. Graduation dates always appear blank and grayed out in Constituent import batches so users will not notice until after committing the records.
We're currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future patch or service pack.  

Steps to Duplicate

1. Go to Administration > Import
2. Run the import process
3. Navigate to the batch created from the import
4. Choose a value for any field that are missing from the import
5. Select any records that have been detected as duplicates > Choose to ignore the potential duplicate, thus allowing the record in the batch to come in
6. Save and Close the batch
7. Commit the batch
8. Review each of the records in the batch, the row that was edited and the row that had the potential duplicate are missing the graduation date.
9. Graduation date is found on the Education tab of the constituent
