In the Know: Mid-Term Grade Report

First year students will be able to view their mid-term grade reports in UDSIS by Monday, October 15. If you do not have a midterm grade posted for a particular class, then that instructor has not submitted the information.

If you are concerned about your midterm grades and have questions about alternative grade options such as withdraw, audit, and pass/fail, contact an academic advisor to discuss your options. The deadline for changing your grade status in a class is Tuesday, October 23, 2018.


Major Exploration Tips & Resources

The What-If Report is a valuable tool to assist students when they are considering a particular academic plan. This resource is provided to help you with academic planning, but using it does not take the place of professional advising. UST students are encouraged to run the report for a major they are considering and bring it with them to their regular advising appointment to review with their advisors.

Campus Resources: Your Academic Advisor

We encourage undeclared students to connect with their UST Advisors to discuss their interests and goals. Prepare for your advisement session by thinking about what you want to discuss BEFORE meeting with your advisor, and bring relevant materials to accomplish your objective.

You may schedule an appointment with your assigned advisor via the Blue Hen Success Collaborative (BHSC). Remember to bring your student ID card to sign in.

Helpful Hints for First-Year Students

¨ Attend classes regularly and focus on the material being covered when you are in class.

¨ Sit near the front of the classroom and make eye contact with the instructor.

¨ Read the syllabus carefully and note important dates (exams, assignments due, etc.) on your personal calendar.

¨ If you have questions about the material or an exam, attend the instructor’s or the teaching assistant’s office hours.

¨ Set aside adequate time to read, study, and complete your coursework. Hone your study skills by attending a free OAE workshop.

¨ If you have concerns, contact an advisor to discuss them.
