Satisfactory / Fail Graded Courses

Certain courses are taught on an S (Satisfactory) or F (Fail) basis. Everyone in the course receives either S or F grades and individual students do not have the option of receiving an A+ through D- grade. Courses graded on an S/F basis usually carry a footnote to that effect in the Schedule of Classes.

  • A grade of S does not affect the grade point average. A grade of F will count like any other failing grade.
  • See our Pass/Fail link to find out more about how a student may request this related grading option which is available to an individual student in a traditionally graded course.
