Grading Policy:

The "CR" grade option, that was implemented last year for remote learning, is no longer an option.  Here is the policy for the S/U grade option -

S/U, Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory: S/U grades do not affect the student’s grade-point average, but a student receiving an Unsatisfactory will not receive credit for the course. The college criterion for Satisfactory is the equivalent of a C or better (not C-). A student may take no more than one course in a semester for an S/U grade, excluding courses that are only offered S/U. A student may take a maximum of 16 semester hours for an S/U grade, excluding internships (and Spring 2020). The S/U option is offered at the discretion of the department or the instructor of the course. The semester schedule will indicate which courses may be taken for an S/U grade. Students must indicate their choice of the S/U grade option at the time of registration. No change may be made after the deadline published on the academic calendar. (Sept 22 for Fall 2021)
