The S/U Grading Option

The S/U Option allows students to change the grade mode of a lower level (100-299) class from A-E to S (Satisfactory)/U (Unsatisfactory).

Before you consider applying this option consider the following:

  • You can only use this option twice.
  • Typically, you should not S/U prerequisites to get into a major. Some majors do not accept S/U graded prerequisite courses. If you are not sure, see your advisor.
  • The last day to S/U or Withdraw from a semester-length course is April 5.
  • You MUST earn a C or higher in order to earn the S and the credit for the course. If you earn a C- or lower, you will receive a U grade and will not earn credit for your course.
  • A grade of S or U will not affect your GPA.
