This is a verbatim excerpt from a longer and more detailed email, but covering the conversion to S/U for undergraduates (separate information for graduate students).
From SUNY University at Buffalo Email:
We have also made a number of changes to satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U) grading policy:
- The deadline for students to elect this option is extended through the last day of the spring 2020 examinations.
- Spring 2020 courses graded S/U are excluded from the maximum 25 percent of S/U credits allowed towards a degree.
Courses taken for S/U grades during spring 2020 will count towards UB Curriculum general education requirements, major requirements and electives.
- Some degree programs may require you to recover letter grades in major courses and pre-requisites in the future. To date these include Nursing, Accounting, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy.
Undergraduate students may find information on how to Request an S/U Grade on the Office of the Registrar website at: https://registrar.buffalo.edu/forms/su-grade.php
