Faculty

Faculty can view their teaching schedule, class rosters, and religious observance notifications, as well as submit final grades and mid-semester progress reports through Faculty Center [PDF, 406KB] after logging in to MySlice. All instructors should be aware of their responsibilities regarding the privacy of student information under FERPA.

Advisors can view information regarding their advisees, including advising transcripts and mid-semester progress reports, through MySlice Advisor Services. Additional information, such as class search and helpful links specifically for advisors, are also available through MySlice.

Instructors have the option to administratively drop students who do not attend the first week of a class. If an emergency prevents a student from attending during the first week, he/she must contact the instructor before the add deadline to affirm his/her intention to continue in the course.
