Mid-Semester is Quickly Approaching!

It's almost half way through the semester! Mid-semester estimates will be available soon for viewing in myRedDragon.

All students should receive estimates on their progress in all courses. The options are:
“S” - Satisfactory
“U” - Unsatisfactory
“F” - Failing
“NR” means “Not Recorded” and typically indicates that your professor did not submit estimates by the deadline. To receive your mid-semester estimates in this case, see your professor directly.
"N" Student never attended the course that was registered for.

Estimates can be helpful in gauging your success so far in the course. If you received a U or F, talk to your professor during his/her office hours about how to improve your grades.  Receiving an S indicates that you currently have a C or higher in your class.  The U indicates C- and below.
Estimates of “S,” however, can also be deceiving since you may not have had enough graded assignments in the class to accurately assign a grade. 

At this time of year, it is a good habit to personally assess your performance in your classes. If you have concerns in a class, even if you received an “S,” talk to your professor and consider seeking academic help through ASAP on campus.
