Evaluations of course instructors by students are done at the end of each semester. These evaluations are kept on file in the Office of Academic Affairs. The course instructor is provided access to the evaluations, but only after all semester grades have been submitted and recorded. Student evaluations of instructors are important feedback mechanisms for the course itself as well as for instructor evaluations by department heads. Students must be officially enrolled in the class by the end of add/drop to be eligible to complete an evaluation.
