The Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) Grade Change Request allows a student to change a traditional letter grade to an S for Satisfactory if they have earned a D- or higher or an F to a U for Unsatisfactory. This form must be submitted by the published deadline. S/U grades will become part of the student’s record but do not count in the grade point average calculated by Truckee Meadows Community College.
Requests for S/U grades will not be completed until the student has connected with an Academic Advisor to discuss the benefits and/or consequences of changing from a traditional letter grade to satisfactory/unsatisfactory. It is important to know that S/U grades may not apply toward certain degree programs, though they will count as attempted prerequisites for limited entry allied health programs. Classes that require specific letter grades (e.g. C or higher) may not accept an S as meeting the prerequisite. Changing to S/U may also affect financial aid, athletics eligibility, Veteran’s benefits, and more, which is why it is important to review your individual situation with an Academic Advisor.
