Mid-Term Grades for Undergraduate Students

The Urbana Senate and academic Associate Deans of the undergraduate colleges have reaffirmed the necessity of mid-term grades for freshmen.  Article 3 – Academic Policies and Regulations of the Student Code states that instructors are required to provide an evaluation of a student’s performance by mid-term.

Mid-term grades will be collected for all new first time freshmen enrolled on campus for university credit.  These grades are not recorded on the student’s permanent record and are advisory grades used for counseling purposes.

Helpful Information

The mid-term population of students is defined as New First Time Freshmen regardless of the number of hours earned.

The Office of the Registrar will load a MIDTERM grade comment to the gradable sections for all new first time freshmen students.

The Mid-term Grade Worksheet contains only the names of students who are in the mid-term population; therefore, a roster may not exist or may list only a portion of the entire class.

An asterisk in the Grade column on the DMI Consolidated Class Rosters for Instructors identifies students who require a mid-term grade.

The MIDTERM grade comment can also be viewed in Banner on the Class Roster form, SFASLST.

Once the deadline to enter mid-term grades has passed, the ability to enter or update the web mid-term grade feature will be electronically shut off.

Instructors will NOT be able to view mid-term grades submitted for students AFTER the submission deadline. Instructors are encouraged to print the class list after submitting the mid-term grades.  (In Self-Service, select Class List Summary and use the web browser print options.)  The Printable Class List – Summary ONLY displays FINAL grades.

Students will be able to view the mid-term grades once the faculty deadline to enter grades has passed.

Student evaluations at mid-term are used for counseling purposes, and are not recorded on the student’s permanent record.

Mid-term grades not submitted by the deadline will not display on the college and departmental advising reports.
