Mid-Term Grades and Deficiencies

On the Monday of Fall Break, instructors will report mid-semester grades to the Office of the Registrar. Those grades are mailed to students’ home addresses on the Tuesday following. Grades will also be available online the following Wednesday.

For students with a letter grade of C-, D, or F, instructors also submit a deficiency report that identifies specific problems in class performance. The deficiency report does not become part of a student’s permanent record — it does not harm the student in any way. In many cases, students who receive mid-term deficiencies are able to raise their grades by the end of the term. Some students raise their averages to a B, or even an A by the end of the term.

Deficiency reports are a to to help first-year students and their advisors proactively address academic issues. Students who receive deficiency reports should contact their First Year advisors immediately after returning from Fall Break. Advisors will work with students to develop solutions to maximize class performance and help students find the best options for their academic careers.
