Class Lists

The Registrar provides class lists to instructors through MAUI, the University's student record information system. Faculty should review their class list at the beginning of each semester or session and daily through the first five days of classes.

Before and during the first five days of class, students add and drop courses online through MyUI, allowing class lists to be updated rapidly during the first five days of classes. After this period, students must add and drop using paper forms.

Instructors may not allow students to attend a course unless they are registered for it by the deadline on the Registrar's calendar.

Students who do not wish to earn credit may register as an auditor if given permission to do so by the instructor.

Reporting Grades

Final grades are reported by each instructor to the DEO for review using MAUI. After the DEO approves the grades, they are recorded on the student's permanent record and are made available to students immediately through their MyUI account.

All instructors are required to submit mid-term course grades below a C-. Some departments require instructor's to submit all midterm course regardless, even those above D+; in other departments mid-term grades above D+ are optional.

Please see the College discussion of grades and grading and student records and confidentiality.

Timeliness of Grade Reports

Final grades must be submitted must be submitted by instructors (via MAUI) at least 24 hours before the final deadline, providing time for the DEO to review the grades. All grade reports (including those for independent studies and off-cycle courses) must be turned in by the deadline. Grades are essential to the evaluation of students for graduation, academic probation, or dismissal. If grade reports are late, instructors may be penalized by a delay in paycheck issuance following the delinquency

Specific deadlines may be found on the Registrar's academic calendar.

Student Attendance

Departmental or instructor attendance and tardiness policies must be clearly stated in the required syllabus. If a complaint or issues arises concerning a student absence, CLAS uses the stated policy within the syllabus to adjudicate the problem.

University policy requires that students be permitted to make up examinations missed because of illness, mandatory religious obligations, certain University activities, or unavoidable circumstances. All instructors must comply with this policy. The attendance policy should provide options for making up examinations missed due to an excused absence.

More information on student attendance, the required information on the syllabus, and related matters may be found on this page.

Absences Due to Illness and Emergencies

Attendance policies should include procedures to accommodate student illness and absences due to emergencies. These policies should be clearly stated on the syllabus and discussed during the semester, especially during key periods, such as at mid-term.
