A note from the Office of Student Success:

How are you feeling about your midterm grades?

Midterm grades are being posted through October 19.  It’s important that students check their average in all classes. If a professor does not post a midterm grade, visit him/her during office hours and write down your current average.  After obtaining all class grades write them down and create an action plan.  The good news is that it’s only half way through the semester and there’s time to turn the ship around, if need be. 

Need a hand with your action plan? Visit your Academic Success Coach or call 513-745-3036 to make an appointment.  Our office can help you develop the tools you need to make this semester great!
