Update: Course grading change option from A-F to S/N deadline extended to Friday, May 22

The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost has announced a new extended deadline for grading basis changes from A-F to S/N. The deadline to switch from A-F to S/N now has been extended to Friday, May 22, 2020 due to students' requests. This new change gives students the option of waiting to switch their grade to S/N until after final grades are posted. 
Check with your advisor!

In response to requests from a student petition and the Minnesota Student Association, the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost has announced a new extended deadline for grading basis changes from A-F to S/N. The deadline to switch from A-F to S/N now has been extended to Friday, May 22, 2020, giving students the option of waiting to switch their grade to S/N until after final grades are posted. 

To request a change of grading basis to S/N after grades are posted in your full-term or B-term undergraduate course(s) on the Twin Cities campus, email One Stop Student Services (onestop@umn.edu) from your University of Minnesota email address. In your request, please include the following information:
  • A statement that you wish to change the grading basis from A-F to S/N
  • Course subject and number (for example: Chemistry 1015)
  • 5-digit class number
Requests for multiple courses may be sent in a single email. The email request must be received by One Stop Student Services no later than 11:59 p.m. (CDT) on Friday, May 22, 2020. Please note that once you have made a request to One Stop, the S/N grade cannot be changed back to A-F.

For more information, review the Twin Cities S/N grading basis FAQ and the CSE Academic Advising blog post. While you do not need permission from your advisor to make this change, we strongly encourage you to carefully consider your option to change to S/N and consult with your academic advisor to determine if electing the S/N grading basis is best for you and your future academic plans.
