Satisfactory/Failing Grades

Certain courses are taught on a Satisfactory (S) or Failing (F) basis. All students in the course receive either S or F grades; individual students do not have the option of receiving a standard letter grade. Courses graded on an S/F basis usually carry a footnote to that effect in the Schedule of Classes. A grade of S will not affect the student’s grade point average; a grade of F will count like any other failing grade.
