Academic Year 2021-2022
As part of the transition to remote courses that took place this semester, we have implemented a one-time midterm grade process for Spring 2020. Midterm grades provide an assessment of a student’s progress toward meeting the learning goals of a course as of 3/13/2020 (when the College transitioned to remote courses). These grades are informational only and do not count toward the GPA and are not part of the official transcript.
Midterm grades include letter grades (A - F) as well as the following non-letter grades:
S (Satisfactory progress)
U (Unsatisfactory progress)
MCR (credit in a course graded as mandatory credit/ noncredit - the equivalent of ‘S’)
MCRD (credit with distinction in a course graded as mandatory credit/ noncredit)
MNCR (noncredit in a course graded as mandatory credit/ noncredit - the equivalent of ‘U’)
Not all courses have midterm grades. Courses taken at Wellesley that carry academic credit toward the degree have a midterm grade. PE courses that satisfy the Physical Education requirement and cross-registered courses taken at other campuses (Babson, Brandeis, MIT and Olin) do not have midterm grades. Many Wellesley faculty elected to give all students midterm grades of S because they did not feel they had enough work on which to base a letter grade. The Registrar does not have additional information about student performance in those courses.
Midterm grades are informational only. They do not count in the cumulative grade point average (Cum GPA).
A student’s midterm grade report is available through Workday. Step by step instructions are:
Students may, at their discretion, share their midterm grades with others. Through Workday, students have the option to view, print, and download the document as a pdf file.
