October means Midterm Grades!

Midterm grades are a vital indicator for student success. That’s why VCU has set a goal of 100% faculty participation in midterm grading for undergraduate courses. The midterm process allows faculty to notify students through eServices of their current grade in the course prior to the semester’s withdrawal deadline.

Midterm grades should be submitted in eServices no later than Friday, Oct. 25. Easy, step-by-step instructions can be found on the Student Success early notification webpage.
