Mid-Term Alerts for Academic Performance

Effective: June 1, 2009
Last Updated: June 1, 2009

Policy Owner: Academic Affairs

 _______________________________________________________________

1. Instructors in all 1-XXX and 2-XXX courses will provide a mid-term alert for students who, on the basis of performance to date in the course, appear to be in danger of receiving a grade of D, F, or N.  Such notification will be provided no later than the end of the eighth week of the semester and earlier if possible, to allow students to improve their classroom performance or to withdraw by the eighth week.  Mid-term alerts will not be recorded on transcripts.

2. Instructors are encouraged to provide mid-term alerts for all other courses.

3. The provision of mid-term alerts is a courtesy to the student.  Failure to receive a mid-term alert does not create the right for a student to contest a grade in a course.
