Undergraduate evaluations are at the option of the faculty. In each course for which you receive a grade of D or better (or P) an evaluation of your academic performance may be submitted. An evaluation may:

  • Describe the strengths and weaknesses of your performance in the various areas of class activity (discussion, laboratory work, term papers, examinations)

  • Assess your general understanding of the course content

  • Recognize additional or particularly outstanding work

Evaluations may be used at UC Santa Cruz in academic advising, reviewing scholarship applications, and awarding honors in the major. Evaluations are a permanent part of your academic record. All students may request transcripts either with or without evaluations.
