It may take up to a week or more to process your request and not all requests will be approved. In the coming days, departments will be developing guidance on which types of courses and how many will be considered for approval. Degree specific accreditation concerns may apply to the approval process. We want to ensure decisions during this unprecedented time do not negatively impact your future academic pursuits.

For the spring 2020 term only students have the option to request Undergraduate S/D/F and request Graduate S/U grades. For the spring 2020 term only, the following policies will be considered for override upon request:

·         S/D/F and S/U grades can be requested until May 11, 2020.

·         Request for approval for waiver of the 4 course S/D/F maximum during your academic career (classes taken S/D/F or S/U will not be counted in future calculations.)

·         Allowance to request for approval S/D/F in major courses

·         Requests cannot be made for Block I courses

Before submitting a request for the above grading options, please note: Students should recognize that their choice to take courses S/D/F (undergraduate) or S/U (graduate) may not be appropriate for all courses and should carefully consider with their advisors or deans’ offices the possible implications of the S/D/F option on progression in a professionally accredited program, on future or pending applications to graduate programs, on scholarships or financial aid, honors, accreditation, and, for undergraduate students, any planned changes of major that might be pending.

Students in affiliated and exchange study abroad programs who have concerns about their grades and credits after the official transcript from their study abroad program is received and posted may submit an appeal to have these courses recorded as S/D/F as outlined in the academic catalog, under Students’ Right to Petition, found at
