The Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (SA/UN) grading option differs from the “P/NP” option in that the faculty member decides when it will be utilized, and must apply it consistently to all students enrolled in the course. Faculty who utilize the “SA/UN” grading system in required or elective courses must so indicate in the course syllabus. Hours passed with grades of “SA” are counted toward the hours required for graduation but do not figure into the grade-point average. The “UN” grade functions as an “F” in computing the grade-point average and in determining scholastic standing. The “SA/UN” grade designations may be used by faculty when reporting student midterm performance, even if letter grading will be utilized to record performance at the end of the term.
