Fall 2017 Midterm Grade Reporting

Submission of mid-semester grades is an established policy outlined in the LSU General Catalog. In an effort to improve mid-semester reporting of student progress, the Office of Academic Affairs would like to remind all faculty and instructional personnel that Fall 2017 midterm grades, as required by policy, are due Tuesday, October 17h, by 9:00 am. To the extent feasible, assessment of student learning should be planned, taking this critical benchmarking date into account.
