Will I receive a progress report for every class?

Instructors are encouraged to submit feedback to all of their undergraduate students during the Mid-Term Progress Reporting period, particularly students with academic concern.  If your academic performance is satisfactory, you may receive a progress report that simply states “no concern” or not at all.  If you do not receive a progress report for a particular course, you are encouraged to discuss any concern you have regarding your progress directly with your instructor. 

Who can I contact if I have questions regarding progress reports?

If you have questions regarding feedback given to you for a particular course, contact your professor directly for more information. You may also contact your academic advisor, success coach or counselor.  If you are experiencing personal issues or have a health concern, you should contact the Dean of Students Office to meet with a staff member who can provide assistance.
