Elective Pass/NoPass Grading for Spring 2021
The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic that struck Illinois during the Spring and Fall 2020 semesters continues to impact the University's course delivery options through the Spring 2021 semester.
As a result of these unprecedented challenges to our faculty and students, SIU leadership has decided to permit undergraduate and graduate students – with the exception of students enrolled in the Schools of Law and Medicine – the option of electing to have their letter grades be converted to "Pass/NoPass" grades instead (i.e., P/NP grades for undergrads, S/U grades for grad students). This option applies to courses taken during the Spring 2021 semester.
Most undergraduate and graduate students were able to elect Pass/NoPass grading on one or more of their Spring 2021 courses. For those permitted to do so, the period to elect Pass/NoPass grading has now ended.
Elective Pass/NoPass grading was also available to most undergraduate and graduate students during the Spring and Fall 2020 semesters. During the Spring 2020 semester only, the School of Law instituted mandatory S/U grading for their courses.
