S/U (Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory)

A grade of S (Satisfactory) indicates passing work (equivalent to the grade of B or higher) in those courses so designated by the program and approved by the Graduate Council where the usual mode of evaluation is impractical. A grade of U (Unsatisfactory) indicates unsatisfactory work. S/U grades are not calculated as part of a student’s cumulative or semester GPA. Courses that are usually offered on a S/U basis are so indicated in the graduate class schedule published for each term.
