This option can be used if an individual student has done enough to complete a course but a more nuanced evaluation cannot be made. No special permission is required to use this option.
Individual students may also request the S/F grading scale at any time throughout the semester. The request will automatically be granted by the registrar.
The S grade has been added as an option to the letter grade scale for this semester.
This option requires the approval of the associate dean.
If you have a compelling reason to convert to the S/F grading scale, email Walter Gantz by March 25. Include your name, academic unit, course number, course title and a description of why an exception should be made for your course.
If you have been grading on an S/F scale from the beginning of the semester, you may continue to do so without requesting special permission.
