At the university where my husband teaches, they used to send the grades out scheduled to arrive the day they got home or the next day at the latest. Then... A girl's dad opened her grades before she got home, was furious that she had ONE "B" with the rest "A" grades and he beat her so badly that she missed the next semester. Then... A married student who had a scholarship
, got her grades, which her abusive husband opened, and he beat her almost to death because she received a "C" in one course.
It was after those two events, that the school decided to delay mailing the grades out until January and now students have the option of having their grades sent to their school address.
If you're really in that much of a rush to know your grades (if you haven't already calculated them for yourself) how about calling or emailing your professor? Students call my husband every semester to ask, and while he may grumble good naturedly sometimes to me, he gives tem to the students.
