Change grade basis

Note: Due to the impact of COVID-19, students have been provided more flexibility in selecting the S/N (pass/fail) grade basis for their spring 2020 classes. You may choose A-F grading or the S/N option for an unlimited number of Spring 2020 full semester and second-half semester courses. Courses taken as S/N during this period will be accepted for major and minor requirements. The deadline for you to change your grade basis for Spring 2020 courses is Thursday, April 30. Please carefully consider your option to change to S/N and consult with your academic advisor.

To view the grade basis for your classes, navigate to the current term on the Grades tab in MyU: Academics. You can change your grade basis through the second week of the term through MyU (see step-by-step instructions).

Choosing your grade basis

You may take a course under A-F or S/N (i.e. "pass/fail") grading bases, or you may Audit a course for no grade. In many cases, you can choose your grade basis when you register, but some courses limit the options available. Be aware that you cannot take major courses with an S/N grading basis, unless a particular course required by your major is only offered with an S/N grading basis. Contact your academic advisor if you have questions about when you can take a course S/N.
