2.5 Midterm Exams and Assistance to At-Risk Students

The period for midterm exams is listed in the University's academic calendar. Examinations given at this time should be administered within the scheduled class meeting. Faculty members are also required to submit mid-semester grades or evaluations (section 1.2). Additional forms will also be distributed by the HEOP office and the Academic Advising Office for Student-Athletes for completion by the course instructor as applicable.

Since the deans' offices closely monitor student performance, please respond expeditiously to requests for information on any student experiencing academic difficulty. If reached soon enough, our students can be warned about their unsatisfactory performance while there is still time for them to attempt to rectify their deficiencies. Many may be helped to succeed through tutoring and academic advising. Others may be encouraged to withdraw from the course before the deadline.
