Students may choose to have a numerically graded course graded as Satisfactory/Non-Satisfactory (S/NS). There are three different methods to change your grading option, and the one you will use depends on when you are wanting to make the change.
You can change your courses to and from the Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory (S/NS) grading option up through the end of finals week/last week of the quarter.
S/NS graded courses do not count for degree or graduation requirements for undergraduate students unless the current quarter is an Extraordinary Circumstances Quarter. No more than 25 S/NS credits may apply toward an undergraduate degree. Graduate students should consult with their advisors.
You may discover that you need to have an S/NS graded course changed to numeric to fulfill degree, prerequisite, or similar requirements. Grades cannot be changed from numeric to S/NS in non-Extraordinary Circumstances Quarters.
If you discover that you need to have an S/NS graded course changed to numeric to fulfill degree, prerequisite, or similar requirements, you may complete the Graduation Petition.
