Many academic units have developed specific grading policies for their courses, especially for multi-section courses, labs, and topical content courses. Whenever that situation arises, the Regional Campus should follow the policies of the academic unit, except where prior agreement provides otherwise.
It is the policy of the University that appropriate student evaluation is done in each class early enough so that timely and meaningful mid-semester grades can be assigned. This is important for all students, especially new students who need to know their progress early in their careers, but holds equally true for all classes and all levels of students. A description of the methods of evaluation and of grading must be clearly defined in the course syllabus and given to each student at the beginning of the semester so that faculty members’ expectations and evaluation of student performance are understood.
