Please read over the policy for entering midterm grades for students.

  • Midterm Grade Policy

    To help undergraduate students monitor their academic performance, faculty members will provide a warning to students with unsatisfactory performance at midterm. Each semester, the registrar will establish and announce the dates for the window within which midterm grades may be posted by faculty members and read by students and advisors. Faculty members will assign a midterm grade of “D” (danger or potential failure), “F” (failure), or an "N" (nonparticipation) by signing into MyIUP through their IUP network account.

    The midterm grade is an advisory grade and is not a permanent part of a student’s academic history. It is not used to determine enrollment status, dismissal, or eligibility for financial aid, housing, or athletics.

    Procedure for Entering Midterm Grades

    Faculty members may enter midterm “D,” “F,” and “N” grades for undergraduate students on class rosters in which he/she is the primary instructor the week following the first half of academic semester. Exact dates in which the midterm grades may be entered can be found on the Academic Calendar.

    Midterm grades may not be entered after the deadline has passed. Students will be able to view their midterm grades once the faculty deadline to enter the grades has passed. Please consult the online academic calendar for each semester when preparing your course syllabus for future semesters.
