The University requires that midterm grades be assigned to students in most undergraduate courses and that these grades be based on appropriate written evidence of achievement. Midterm grades are assigned mid-way through the fall and spring term, as per the deadline in the University Academic Calendar. The undergraduate courses in which faculty have the option to assign a midterm grade are these: Exchange; Marquette-Led Study Abroad; Workshop/Institute/Studio; Practicum/Clinical/Field Experience/Student Teaching; Internship/Externship; Independent Study/Research; Senior Capstone; Senior Project; Senior Thesis. If midterm grades will be assigned in these courses, the instructor will include this information in his/her syllabus distributed at the beginning of the term.

Midterm exams are scheduled during the regular lecture period on the exam day listed below. The midterms are designated by the days of the week that the lecture meets and the hour the lecture begins. For example: a class that meets during the term on MWF and begins at 9 a.m., has its midterm exam on Friday, October 12, from 9-9:50 a.m.
