View or change a grade basis

To view or change the current grade basis for your classes, go to MyU: Academics (see step-by-step instructions).

Before you decide whether to change a grade basis, consider potential impacts on financial aid, graduate or professional school applications, and/or eligibility for scholarships. Talk with your Student Success Coach to determine potential impacts.

Choosing a 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. 

The University policy states 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 Student Success Coach or your program with questions.
