Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory (S/U) grades may not be used to fulfill any of the credits required for graduation, including all elective courses. AVID Tutor, Teacher’s Aide, the Community Volunteer Service course, and the Parallel Learning course are the exceptions. These courses may be used to fulfill graduation requirements in the electives area.
S/U grade option may be used only after a student has accumulated six
(6) credits toward graduation. To exercise this option, underclassmen
must be enrolled in no fewer than six (6) classes, five (5) of which
must be credit bearing. The sixth class may be an S/U course. Seniors
must be enrolled in a minimum of four (4) credit bearing courses. The
fifth class may be an S/U course.
decisions regarding the S/U grade option are limited to the first four
and one-half (4.5) weeks of a course in which they are already
enrolled. The S/U grade option is limited to one course per semester.
As with any other course, if students withdraw from an S/U grade course
after the 9-week period, they will receive a “WF” for that course. The
“S” grade is not calculated into the student’s GPA. A grade of “U”,
however, is calculated in the GPA and is equivalent to an “F”. NCAA interprets an “S” grade as a “D” grade according to NCAA guidelines.
