Early Progress/Midterm Grades

The Campus Council has gone on record as "affirming the fundamental responsibility of instructors to inform students of their progress in courses as accurately and completely as possible." In meeting this responsibility, early progress/midterm grades are entered into the student information system by instructors during the sixth through the eighth week of class during the fall and spring terms for students in 1000- and 2000-level full-term courses. Instructors in upper-level and graduate classes may also enter midterm grades at their discretion.  Early progress grade reports are available to students as soon as they are submitted.  Reports are made available in the ninth week to the deans' offices for advising.
