UPDATE: Additional grading options for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021

The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost has announced further exceptions to the grading policies allowing undergraduate students enrolled in Twin Cities undergraduate courses to choose between S/N and A-F grading for fall 2020 and spring 2021 courses. Students who wish to switch from A-F grading to S/N grading (or the opposite) for fall 2020 must contact One Stop Student Services by email between Monday, Jan. 4 and Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021.
Check with your advisor!

In response to a resolution proposed by student members of the University Senate and approved by faculty senators, the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost has announced further exceptions to the grading policies allowing for undergraduate students enrolled in Twin Cities undergraduate courses to choose between S/N and A-F grading for fall 2020 and spring 2021 courses.

Students who have received their final grade and wish to switch their grading basis for fall 2020 should email One Stop Student Services from their University of Minnesota email address between Monday, Jan. 4 and Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021 with 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
For more information, review the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory (S/N) grading basis fact sheet for the Twin Cities campus and the Provost's statement on Additional Grading Changes for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.

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. Check out the Academic Advising blog for things to consider when thinking about changing your Fall 2020 grading basis.
