Official grades are submitted at the end of each term and are available to students through the online WINGS Student Center. Academic action is taken at the end of each semester. Grades are not mailed. Students with unsatisfactory grades are expected to seek counseling and help with their studies. Available resources include the instructor(s), adviser, and department tutors. Student services staff, particularly Counseling and Testing Center personnel, will provide assistance on a confidential basis. Freshmen, especially, are encouraged to seek help at the earliest sign of academic difficulty. The university assumes that students will communicate regularly with interested parties (e.g. parents) with respect to academic status and progress.
