Registrar’s Notes – August 18, 2014

Summer II Grading

Summer II grades are due tomorrow at noon. The grading system will be turned off soon after the deadline and we will begin processing. Grades will be available for students to view as soon as processing has been completed, which we anticipate will be sometime tomorrow afternoon. Students will be notified through their e-mail account if their academic standing changes to probation, extended probation, final probation or dismissal.

Students dismissed as a result of their Summer II grades will be dropped from any Fall 2014 registration on Friday, August 22.
