Spring Semester 2019-20 Exempted Courses for Grading Policy

Representatives from Student Senate, Graduate Student Senate, Faculty Senate (including the Educational Policy and Student Affairs committee), and the Provost’s Office have developed a flexible, alternative grading system as well as additional adjustments to key academic policies for Spring Semester 2019-2020. The alternative grading system has an expanded range of grading options and applies to spring semester undergraduate courses and graduate courses, regardless of their original modality — online, hybrid, or face-to-face — unless a course is exempted from this option (see Course Exemption section below). Courses that were completed prior to March 23, 2020, are not eligible for these grading options. An FAQ regarding the grading policy for Spring Semester 2019-20 is available online.
