What are Mid-Term Warnings?
Midterm warnings are a great way to let students know they are barely passing or failing a class. Students might be producing D or F quality work, might not be submitting work, or might be habitually absent and in danger of being withdrawn or failing for absences. If any of these are the case, you should give a Midterm Warning (listed as MW). The student will receive a letter explaining that he or she should contact the professor of that class to discuss the grade, and the letter also suggests the student take advantage of the college’s resources. You report MW grades through ROARS. (Developmental instructors can also give MW grades; they have the additional option of giving an Early Warning grade, which would occur before the midterm period.
