Grading

Reporting

There are three grade posting dates each semester. The progress reports or report cards for these are posted online through CubClassroom. Assignment grades are also available for viewing on these dates. Each grade posting is also a check for Cocurricular Eligibility. It is very important that our students remain eligible to participate in cocurricular activities. The policy is described in the section Academic Probation and Eligibility of the 2016-2017 Student/Parent Handbook. The policy applies to athletics and all other cocurricular activies. The Semester Grades are cumulative grades for the work, tests, and semester exams. These are the only grades posted on a student's transcript. Progress reports/report cards are posted after 2:30 p.m. on their posting date. Faculty may choose to show assignment detail earlier but are not obligated to have them available before the posting dates listed.
