Evaluation of Student Performance

The Day Division academic year is divided into two semesters, approximately 16 weeks. Grades are issued at the end of each semester and become a part of the student's permanent record. Final grades are available to students online through the “MyFisher" site. At mid-semester, students and their academic advisors are notified of their course grade (to that point), if they are then averaging a C- or below. The Division of Accelerated and Professional Studies is divided into six terms of approximately eight weeks. At the end of each term, grades are available to students online through the “MyFisher" site and become a permanent part of the student's academic record. Students should refer to their individual course syllabi for exam requirements. The weight of the final exam grade to the student's overall average differs among departments. In no instance, however, may it count for more than one third of the final grade. Final exams and papers are retained by the instructors for a period of six weeks for student review and re-evaluation. All credits awarded are semester hours of credit. Regardless of the length of the term, a standard number of contact hours is maintained. Final written examinations or evaluations are required in each academic subject. Every student is required to complete successfully all course requirements including final examinations. Students late for exams are admitted at the discretion of the instructor; however, no extra time is allowed. Fisher College adheres to the federal definition of a credit hour.
