The Registrar is responsible for the registration of students, the receiving and recording of grades, and for the maintenance and preservation of the official academic records of all students.
Records in the office of the Registrar may be made available to faculty for inspection in accordance with the policy of Marywood University for compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Copies of the policy are available at the office of the Registrar.
Class rolls are issued to the faculty at the beginning of each semester. At the end of the first quarter, faculty members submit to the Registrar the names of students in undergraduate courses who are doing unsatisfactory work. Students having grades D+, D, or F will be so advised.
At the end of the semester, class sheets are provided on which final grades are entered. These sheets are presented to the Office of Academic Records. A photocopy should be retained by the instructor. The Office of Academic Records keeps these grades in the permanent record file and sends reports to the students.
Because of the occasional but important need to recheck student performance and attendance, it is strongly recommended that faculty members keep accurate books and retain these records for five years. Sets of other critical examination papers should be retained for at least six months.
