First-Time Freshmen Mid-Term Grade Review Process (The Party Is Over)
The first semester for first-time freshmen is pivotal to academic success and graduation. Beginning this fall, all first-time freshmen will have their mid-term grades reviewed by the Office of University Advising and the Registrar. If a student receives all mid-term grades of F, FN, U, or UN (indicating nonattendance and/or failure to meet course requirements), the student will be required to participate in an intervention program that includes the following:
- a study skills workshop
- a student success contract
- a registration hold
Additionally, the student will be moved from a baccalaureate program into the Associate of General Studies major until they have earned a 2.0 term GPA.
Students who do not comply with these intervention measures may be academically suspended at the end of the semester.
Midterm grades are important for all undergraduate students. However, in light of this new retention related academic measure, faculty are asked to be diligent in submitting midterm grades for freshman by the submission deadline (October 16). A reminder of the midterm grade submission date has been sent by the Registrar.
