The deadline to change from A-F to S/U grading is coming up on Friday, February 24th. Stop by the Student Services Office for a form and then please see your advisor to discuss changing your grading basis as there are only certain classes in which you can apply this grading option. If you are permitted to S/U the course in question your advisor will sign the form and then you should take it to the Registrar’s Office in the Kerr Admin Building. See below for more information.
What is S/U grading you ask?
S/U stands for Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading. The last day to change your grading status in a class from the standard A-F grading to S/U is February 24th. If you want to do this, visit the Student Services Office and request a Change of Grading Basis form. Fill it out and take it to your advisor for the required signature. You CANNOT take a class for your major on the S/U system. Also remember that if a Baccalaureate Core class is counted towards your major, that can’t be taken on an S/U basis either. There is a university limit of 36 credits that can be taken S/U.
Contrary to popular belief, you CANNOT elect to take a class Pass/No Credit. This class grading system is determined by the university for enrichment or skill-building courses such internships and FOR 353. P/N classes do not affect your GPA. If you are concerned about a class that you are may be doing poorly in, the following options will help to preserve your GPA.
