Grades are available to all students at the end of each semester. The university has made grades available via the web. Quarterly grades, for freshmen are distributed through academic advisors; upperclassmen will be able to access their Quarterly grades through the web. Quarterly grades are not recorded but are issued solely to advise students of their academic progress. NG (no grade) is not a permanent grade and is assigned in those infrequent instances when a faculty member is late in returning grades or has not recorded a grade for a given student, for one reason or another.
