Change grade basis

Note: due to COVID-19, students have been provided more flexibility in selecting the grade basis for their fall 2020 & spring 2021 classes. See the Fall 2020 & Spring 2021 S/N Fact Sheet 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.
