First Work Grades

Instructors were asked to submit a first work grade for their students by September 27.  I am pleased to report that we had a record number for first work grades submitted this semester.   Thank you to all instructors who took the time to report this information.   Advisors have access to student’s first work grades and are in the process of following up with students who appear to be struggling academically.  Instructors are encouraged to assign a midterm grade by October 27.
