In 2003, the University Senate approved a mid-semester grading process to help students better understand and monitor their academic progress in all classes. This Senate-approved system enables instructors in all courses to enter midterm grades, but requires 1000- and 2000-level courses to record grades of C- or below into the Student Administration System. The goal is to ensure that students understand their academic progress so they can seek appropriate support or potentially withdraw from the class.
These grades are not part of the permanent record, as they are designed to help students. The Registrar will alert the students, their advisors, and others as appropriate of the mid-semester grades that faculty have submitted.
Please take the time to indicate in the Student Administration System any students who are earning any grades below C, including N grades. Mid-semester rosters will be available from Monday, October 3, through Friday, October 21. For instructions on entering mid-semester grades, see Record Mid-Semester Grades.
