Policies & Procedures

Grading System

Satisfactory/Fail Grades (S/F)
This grading option is initiated by the professor teaching a particular course. The professor must obtain permission from the dean of the faculties to grade the class on an S/F basis, and the class must be notified during the first class session that the course will be graded on an S/F basis.

The grade of S carries no grade points and consequently is not considered in figuring grade point averages. The grade of F is used in GPA calculations.

There is no limit to the number of courses or credit hours a student may take on an S/F basis because the option is initiated by a professor. For student-initiated Pass/Fail grading option information, see the Pass/Fail section.
