In response to the disruption of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are amending the university grading policy for winter and spring quarters. Please review the following guidelines for each quarter.
We are, for winter quarter, amending university grading policy:
We are, for spring quarter, amending university grading policy:
1. If you are a nursing major, you are required to follow nursing guidelines for courses that are pre-requisites. For example, the College of Nursing will determine the acceptable grade for “CR” in anatomy and physiology, not the biology department.
2. If you are working toward a business major, you will not be able to take ACCT 2300 for “CR,” because the Albers School of Business requires a letter grade for this course.
3. If you are pursuing a philosophy major and taking a business course as an elective credit, you are not required to keep the letter grade and can choose “CR”, because you are not planning to graduate with a degree in the Albers School of Business
ALBERS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS DEGREES
COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES DEGREES
COLLEGE OF EDUCATION DEGREES
For courses where students are able to choose a grade of "Credit," the COE as a college will stay with the standard threshold for receiving "Credit" (C or above for graduate students; D- for undergraduates).
Students will be allowed to choose the option of "Credit" for courses in: SDAD, AEDT, EDUC, TSOL, and ENES, and for courses in SPED and EDLR except those noted below.
Students will not be allowed to choose the option of "Credit" for courses in SPSY, COUN, EDAD, EDLS, TEED, and for the following courses in EDLR (EDLR 6160, 6170, 6180, and 6190) and SPED (SPED 5900). In these courses, students will continue to receive letter grades that they cannot convert to "Credit."
DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND DEGREE
COLLEGE OF SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING DEGREES
Letter grades are required for the following courses:
Students can change their grade to CR/F in all math courses. If this change is made, A CR will be granted for a grade of D+ or higher.
A CR means that you have satisfied the minimal expectation of the course and therefore will earn credit.
Please submit a Petition to Change to CR grade form for the quarter you are wishing to change. Forms can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, with exception of specific courses noted on this website, this option is available to all students.
CR changes are not reversible.
Yes, SU is allowing CR grades to apply to degree programs.
No, A CR grade is not factored in the calculation of your GPA.
No, a CR grade will apply to your degree and will have no impact on your VA benefits. You will still be making progress in your degree.
No, the government is being flexible during this unprecedented time and CR grades will satisfy visa requirements. However, if you are planning to be a full-time student during the summer quarter, please contact the ISC.
No, a CR grade will apply to your degree and will have no negative impact on your NCAA eligibility. You will still be making progress in your degree.
The federal government has encouraged institutions to be flexible during this time. However, we cannot predict how other institutions will react, please contact individual institutions with your transfer and application questions.
All financial aid requires at least a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 for undergraduate and 3.0 for graduate students for renewal (unless otherwise specified). There is no GPA associated with the CR option. So, before choosing the CR option, students should make sure their current GPA is at the minimum standards for financial aid renewal. If you have any questions, please consult with Student Financial Services before electing CR grading.
Students on a Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Academic Plan due to GPA requirements should contact Student Financial Services and discuss the impact of CR grading.
