Please note that first-year students are to be assigned letter grades at midterm time, whereas upperclassmen and PCS students (only those in danger of failing) receive a numerical code indicating the nature of their deficiency. First-year students are identified as such not by credits but by expected graduation term, which is given on the Mini Class List. Please notify the appropriate dean if there are any student(s) attending your course whose name is not on the attendance report. The student will not receive credit for the course unless their name is on the official course list.

In the event the student stops attending your course at any time during the semester, you must notify via email the Office of Academic Records ([email protected]) as well as the student's class dean or, at PCS, the respective assistant or associate dean. The email should contain the student's name, FIDN, the course subject/number/section, the CRN, and the student's last date of attendance.
