Midterm grades are issued in an effort to provide students with early feedback about academic progress. Midterm grades are only available on the MyBTC portal after the eighth week of the semester; midterm grades are not mailed to students. Letter grades of "S" or "U" are issued. An "S" indicates that the student is currently performing at a "C" or higher in the course. A "U" indicates that the student is performing at a "C-" or lower in the course. Should this occur, it is advised that the student speak with the instructor. These grades are not recorded on student transcripts and are not used to compute grade point averages.
