Request for Undergraduate S/U Grade

Students may opt to have a course graded as S/U in lieu of the traditional letter grades by completing the Request for Undergraduate S/U Form by the end of the drop/add period for the semester. Students cannot select S/U grading for any course that is required for their major(s), or is a prerequisite for their major(s) or general education requirements. No more than 25 percent of a student’s UB credit can be graded S/U. For further policy and procedure information on S/U grading, consult the Undergraduate Catalog Explanation of Grades and scroll down to the pertinent section called Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Grading.

Courses requested for S/U will be converted to “S” for grades earned of “C” and above, including “P”. Earned grades of “C-” and below will be converted to “U”.

Use the S/U tool (link will open in a new window) (UBITName and Password required) to verify that your S/U grade request has been approved. This tool can also be used to request grade recovery at a later date.

Fields marked with an asterisk * are required.
