KU facts and figures

Online grades

Kansas University now sends its grades out online. Grades are no longer mailed to students (and/or their parents), but instead are accessible on the university's main Web site with a username and password.

The system updates every day at 8 a.m. Advantages: Parents won't catch your grades in the mail and grades are posted as instructors turn them in.

Disadvantages: The system can be difficult for the less computer-saavy, and when too many people use the site, it gets jammed and grades are unattainable.

The spring 2001 semester was the first experience students had with the process.
