Students pursuing a bachelor’s degree may earn a maximum of 30 semester credits in courses graded on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U) basis, subject to the approval of each college.

  1. Transfer students may earn a maximum of one-fourth of their remaining credits at the university on an S/U basis, providing the total does not exceed university policy.
  2. Transfer students with more S/U credits than allowed by university policy are ineligible for additional S/U registration, except for required courses offered on an S/U basis only.
  3. Each course taken to satisfy a university general education requirements must be completed with a regular letter grade, unless the course is only offered for S/U. Credit by exam is S/U only.
  4. Each college is responsible for determining the total number of credits earned with grades of “S”, and the specific courses (transfer, elective or required) that are acceptable toward a degree in that college, within the limits of the university maximum.
  5. Each course that is approved for S/U grading only is so designated in this catalog for reference.
  6. Credits and grades recorded in accordance with the satisfactory/unsatisfactory policy are applicable toward meeting graduation requirements, but are excluded when calculating the grade-point average.
