Important Information Regarding Midterm Grading for FreshmenPosted Oct. 1, 2012
Online midterm grading for freshmen in full-term Fall Semester 2012 courses begins Thursday, Oct. 11, via FlashFAST. Please remember that midterm grading applies ONLY to courses that meet for the full semester. The deadline for midterm grade submission is midnight on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
No midterm grade can be reported after the deadline. The Grade Change workflow cannot be used to report midterm grades after the fact, and the University Registrar will not accommodate other late submission requests.
