Grades

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. Failure of Faculty members to provide grades in compliance with University Policy will be taken into consideration in reappointment, promotion, tenure, and Faculty Excellence Award decisions.

  1. Mid-Term Grading

    Mid-term grades are completed between the fourth and seventh week for all students in lower-division undergraduate courses (i.e., levels 00000, 10000, 20000). Mid-term grading for Freshman is mandatory for courses that meet the entire semester. Please note that mid-term grades cannot be reported after the deadline and the Grade Change workflow cannot be used to report mid-term grades after the fact. The University Registrar will not accommodate late submission requests.
