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 www.grades.ku.edu 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.
