I write to remind you that Mid-Term Grades are due by
October 19, 2013.
Given the University’s goals of enhancing student engagement and
supporting the academic progress of students, for the purpose of
mid-term grade submission, the University defines freshmen as all
first-time undergraduate students admitted for the current
semester, regardless of the number of credits they have, and all
other undergraduate students who have 24 or fewer credits.
In order to enter your mid-term grades you need only to log into
St. John’s Central, select UIS, click on Faculty and select the
Mid-Term Grades option. The X numbers of the students you
must enter grades for will be highlighted in red. Although
University policy requires that you submit mid-term grades for
freshmen, you are encouraged to submit mid-term grades for all
students. In accordance with established practice, we will continue
to report to the Provost and Deans on the progress of mid-term
grade submission. After the mid-term grade due date, you will
be receiving emails from my office which lists any freshmen for
which you have not submitted grades.
I would like to remind you that mid-term grades are informational
only. They do not appear on a student’s transcript.
Although grades are not due until October 19, 2013, you can begin
to enter grades on Friday, October 11, 2013. The last day for a
student to withdraw from a class or to apply for a pass/fail option
is Monday, November 11, 2013.
I thank you for your cooperation in submitting mid-term grades.
Mid-term grades provide students a better understanding of their
progress at this key point in the semester, and help them in their
planning for the remainder of the semester.
Feel free to contact me should you have questions.
