Grades

Final grades are shared with students, in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, in the weeks following the conclusion of finals. Final grades may only be shared with additional family if the student chooses to authorize such sharing.

Students are required to declare an initial major in their fourth semester (see academic calendar for official deadline). Additional major and minor declarations must be made no later than the full-term course withdrawal deadline in the fall semester of the student’s senior year.
