Grades, Reporting Grades
Grading standards, symbols, grade point scales, GPA determinations,
and other considerations regarding the quality of work of students are the prerogative of the faculty of the programs, as are issues of promotion and advancement.
Posting of Grades
Course grades of individual students may not be posted or made available in any public manner by name, initials, social security number, unique assigned student identification number, or other personal identifier except when the student has signed an authorization.
Before a student’s grade can be posted, he/she will be asked to sign a consent form and be assigned a random number as a personal identifier. Generally, each individual faculty member who posts grades will go through the procedure to obtain consent and assign a number. (Some course instructors do not post grades.) In some schools, consent forms are processed by the Dean’s Office.
It is a student’s right to decline to sign a consent form, in which case the student’s grades will not be posted.
Students may view their grades through Inside UTHSCSA.
