    • Final grades have been posted to http://myutk.utk.edu. Please click the links to the rubrics from your gradesheet to view comments on the final projects and final exam. If you notice an error or missing grade item on the final projects or final exam, email a regrade request with the subject line "EF230 Regrade Request" to both Dr Espera and DrB including the specific problem and rubric item by COB Friday, Dec 15.

  • The Vol Study Center is hosting a series of “review rallies” for several Math/EF courses and for ME 202. These are group review sessions which intentionally occur 1-2 days before exams. Click on the title above to see the flyer for more information on the sessions available.

    As noted on the Academic Success Center website, students who want to attend in-person sessions should RSVP to ensure their in-person spot. Large rooms are reserved, but some sessions still filled up in the fall due to demand. There is no limit on the number of students who can join via Zoom, and Zoom information will be updated on our site as the dates approach.

  • Check Spam Folder for UTK Communication
    We want to remind students using Gmail to check their spam folder to ensure they are not missing critical updates about academic success, graduation, advising, and more. OIT made changes to improve Gmail security, however, as a result more emails may be delivered to spam folders. OIT recommends taking the following steps:
    • Mark incorrectly classified messages as “Not Spam.” Gmail uses machine learning to understand user preferences and recognize spam. By manually marking a message as “Not Spam,” Gmail learns how to manage messages more effectively.
    • Add trusted senders to personal contacts list. By adding an email address to the contacts list, Gmail knows not to mark messages from those senders as spam.
