1. Faculty members must inform students of their progress throughout the semester. Grades are a faculty member's responsibility and should be assigned fairly and objectively. Submission of final grades must comply with University Policy, including but not limited to the deadline for the timely submission of grades. Failure of faculty members to provide grades in compliance with University Policy will be taken into consideration in reappointment, promotion, tenure and Faculty Merit decisions. 
  2. Grade books/spread sheets and other materials used in computing grades (e.g., exams, papers, reports, etc.) that are not returned to the student must be retained by the faculty member for one year after final grades are submitted. Students have a right to inspect the written work performed during a course and discuss the grade with the faculty member.
