Change grade basis

Note: due to COVID-19, students have been provided more flexibility in selecting the S/N grade basis for their spring 2020 classes. Undergraduate students may choose A-F grading or the S/N option for an unlimited number of spring 2020 and B-term courses. Courses taken as S/N during this period will be accepted for major and minor requirements. This option varies by program for graduate and professional coursework. See the Spring 2020 S/N FAQ for more information.

To view the grade basis for your classes, navigate to the current term on the Grades tab in MyU: Academics. You can change your grade basis through the second week of the term through MyU (see step-by-step instructions).

Choosing your grade basis

You may take a course under A-F or S/N (i.e. "pass/fail") grading bases, or you may Audit a course for no grade. In many cases, you can choose your grade basis when you register, but some courses limit the options available. Be aware that you cannot take major courses with an S/N grading basis, unless a particular course required by your major is only offered with an S/N grading basis. Contact your academic advisor if you have questions about when you can take a course S/N.
