Where should a student go for advice on academic questions?
Each student is assigned a
faculty advisor who is a great resource for academic questions. Your student
should feel free to use his/her advisor to the fullest extent necessary. If students
are having trouble in a particular class, they should not hesitate to speak with
their professor during regularly scheduled office hours. The
Office of Academic Success
provides peer tutoring each semester, support for students with disabilities, and
help for students who haven’t decided on a major.
How does Hendrix report grades?
At the end of each semester grades are posted first in the student's Campus Web
account. Grades are posted later in the parents' Campus Web account once they are
finalized after exams. Under the
Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) parents may not be able
to view grades only if their student declares financial independence and removes
the consent to the release of their education records.Transcript requests must be
made in writing. For further information, go to the Office
of the Registrar .
What is an Interim Report?
Hendrix does not report midterm grades; however, midway through the semester professors
may choose to write an Interim Report to notify students of any concerns they may
have about class performance. Students and advisors receive a copy of the report
first. Parents may view the report in their Campus Web account once the Registrar's
Office processes the reports, usually within a week of the student receiving them.
