Will I receive grades or progress reports for my student?

 

Due to the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA), grades are released only to the student. The university does not issue progress reports prior to the release of semester grades. It is each student's responsibility to keep track of their own progress by following the grading criteria set forth in each course's syllabus, which is issued during the first class meeting. Parents are encouraged to talk with their students about how they will share their grade information prior to the start of each semester.
