Grade Submission



Mid-Semester Deficiency Grades

Mid-semester deficiency notices are sent to students who are performing at the "D" or "F" grade level (or the "C-" grade level in clinically related courses of the Health Careers Division). The intent is to notify students of their academic status. The deficiency grades are also forwarded to the students' academic advisors. They are not recorded on the student's official academic record. Mid-semester deficiency grades and final grades must be entered into MiddleNet.

Final Grades

Final grades must be submitted electronically using MiddleNet.  Click here for instructions on how to input final grades. Late grades compromise the students' registration, graduation and transfer.  Day and evening faculty are notified of deadlines for submitting grades each semester.

Incomplete Grades

The grade "I" or Incomplete is recorded when, for reasons beyond their control, students miss a final examination or some part of the required coursework. Most instructors require students to notify them of the reason for their absence before awarding this grade. No quality points are awarded for an Incomplete. All Incomplete grades must be removed by completion of the necessary course requirements within the following semester. After that period, remaining incomplete grades will be converted to an "F" grade.

In Progress Grades

The grade "IP" applies to self-paced courses only. To receive the IP ("in progress") grade, students must:

  • complete at least one-half of the course material
  • demonstrate good attendance
  • sign a contract with the instructor detailing the conditions and timeframe for full completion of the course.

Students with IP grades must complete the course in the semester following the one in which they began it, or they will receive an F grade, unless the instructor has granted an extension.

Grade Change

An instructor may change a grade by completing a Grade Change Form, which is obtained from and sent to the Student Information Center. Grade changes may also be submitted via an instructor’s official MCC email to GradeChange@middlesex.mass.edu. For example, this procedure might follow the make-up of an incomplete grade, or in case of error. Please refer to the student handbook (click on Quick Links) for information about students’ right to appeal grades.
