So that you are empowered to stay on the path toward graduation, you will receive mid-semester grades in your lower-division courses. If faculty and advisors see a potential for academic improvement, they will give you early feedback about your performance so far that semester, and motivate you to rise to the challenge of getting back on track if you need to.
