Satisfactory (S) or fail (F) option
Some courses may be taught on an “S” (satisfactory) or "F" (fail) basis.
In these courses, you will earn one of these two grades. No other satisfactory grades (i.e., A+ through D-) will be given or are possible.
Be aware that an S grade does not affect your GPA; like any other grade, however, an F will count against your GPA.
