Midterm Grade Alerts

Midterm Grade Alerts:

Instructors are required to notify students in 1xxx- and 2xxx-level courses when students appear to be in danger of receiving a grade of D, F or N based on their academic performance through the eighth week of the semester. The purpose of this notification is to prompt at-risk students to take corrective action. The mid-term grade alert is meant to provide helpful feedback on a student's progress in the course.

Mid-term grade alerts are accessed via the MyU portal. Each course will have a midterm grade roster available in the grading tab in the Faculty Center.

Mid-term grade alerts may also be used by instructors to notify students in the class who are performing well and students in upper division courses. Mid-term grade alerts are provided as a courtesy to students. Failure to receive a mid-term grade alert is not cause for a student to contest a grade in a course.

Mid-term grade alerts are typically provided no later than week 8 of the semester. This allows time for students to improve their grade(s). It also allows students, if necessary, to withdraw by week 10 of the semester, which is the last opportunity to cancel classes without college approval.

Academic advisers are notified of any advisee who receives a mid-term grade alert; the process for addressing this issue varies by program and college. Students should talk with their instructor and academic adviser about any mid-term grade alerts they receive.
