Update on S/U Grades for Summer Session

Dear CSN Family,

NSHE Chancellor Thom Reilly, along with the Board of Regents, has approved the satisfactory/unsatisfactory grade change option for summer 2020 courses. Students will be permitted to request an S/U grade rather than a traditional letter grade. Instructors will still assign letter grades at the end of the semester, but students have the option to ask that the letter grade be changed to an S/U grade.

We have prepared a Frequently Asked Questions document to help students, faculty and staff understand the process. Students who want to change their grades are required to discuss the pros and cons with a CSN counselor prior to submitting the official grade change request. The steps of the grade change process are included in the FAQs.

Following are the deadlines to submit a grade change request after communicating with a counselor:

  • Friday, August 7, 2020 by 11:59 p.m. – summer 2020 sessions ending July 26, 2020 and earlier
  • Monday, August 17, 2020 by 11:59 p.m. – summer 2020 session ending August 9, 2020

If you interact with students who are interested in this option, please let them know about the FAQ.

Thank you,

Federico Zaragoza
College of Southern Nevada
