2. Midterm Grade Reporting

Midterm Grading will open on Monday, February 17, 2014. This is an important student support process. Midterm grades are required for all freshmen and for undergraduate students classified as less than good standing. Only those students who require a midterm grade will be listed on the Banner grade sheet so please be sure to check to see if there are students in your courses who need a midterm grade. Midterm grades are due before 12:00 noon on Tuesday, February 25, 2014.

3. GVSU Undergraduate Research Scholar Designation on the GVSU Transcript - From the Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (OURS)

Exemplary GVSU Undergraduate students who have pursued research or creative projects are eligible to receive a designation of "Undergraduate Research Scholar" or "Undergraduate Creative Scholar" on their official transcript, beginning Winter Semester 2014.  The goal of the GVSU Undergraduate Research Scholar designation is to foster and deepen undergraduate research at GVSU, while recognizing student excellence in undergraduate research and inquiry. The program recognizes that exemplary student scholarship encompasses a depth of knowledge in the discipline, strong skills of inquiry, an understanding of research ethics, and strong skills in writing and presentation.


The application process and requirements can be found on the Request for Scholar Designation Application which can be downloaded from www.gvsu.edu/ours.
