Mid-Semester grades are assigned in undergraduate courses at the end of the eighth week of each semester. The purpose of mid-semester grades is advisory; the grades are not part of a student's official academic record or transcript. At mid-semester, an instructor may assign to undergraduates evaluative letter grades (A, B, C, D, or F) or grades to indicate satisfactory (S) or unsatisfactory (U). (S and U may not be assigned as final course grades in undergraduate courses). Students may view their mid-semester grades on the Student Information System. Students who have any low or unreported mid-semester grades should discuss their progress with their instructors and with their advisors.
