Course and Instructor Evaluations (CIE)
Course and Instructor Evaluations are collected online via FoxLink. Students will be reminded of the dates to complete the form via their Rollins email*. Student participation in the online evaluation process is crucial to the validity and usefulness of this system. During the evaluation period, if you have not completed all of your course/instructor evaluations you will receive email notification (sent to your Rollins account*) every day until all of your evaluations are complete.
Penalty: There will be a penalty for students who fail to complete all evaluations before the published deadlines. In such cases, students will be blocked from access to online grade viewing for a period of two weeks after end term grades are posted. No paper grades or transcripts will be released for this period of time. Grades for all fall term courses are due on December 12.
Exclusions: Some courses such as applied music, internships, and independent study have been excluded from the evaluation process.
Evaluation Dates: The CIE will be activated for student input on the following dates (tentative):
8:00 a.m. on November 18 through Midnight on December 2.
*Rollins e-mail is our official means of communication. Students, faculty and staff are expected to check it on a regular basis.
December 17 (Noon)
Note to students: Grades are posted as they are received and grade point averages and academic standing will not be accurate until after administrative processes are complete - usually three or four days after the due date. The dean and president list confirmation process may take up to ten days following the grade submission deadline. The status reflected in FoxLink and on student records is subject to change during this time.
Grades are not mailed to students. Students may view grades through FoxLink as they are received and posted in the Holt School Office. Unofficial grade reports and transcripts may be downloaded directly from FoxLink. Official transcript copies may be requested in writing from the Holt School Office for a nominal fee.
