Faculty senate has asked us to poll the students to get more information on the issue, so that will be going out in an email soon.
Right now it’s up to the teacher’s discretion whether or not their class has a +/- grading system. When we polled the student body there was not enough interest in making this change. Thank you for your time and if you still have concerns you can try to speak with your professor about it.

Our Board of Trustees representative, Jerry Miller, is looking in to details about the policy and history of why it was implemented. Will get back when we have more info!
It is now required for graded work to be returned within two weeks of it being turned in. It’s now posted on all the syllabus!
