COVID-19 Alternative Grading - S/NS Grading

During the Spring 2020 semester, MSU provided an alternative grading scale called Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory (S/NS).  Students completing course during the Spring semester could elect to have the grades changed to S/NS.  The opportunity to change the grades exists from May 6 - May 20, 2020 (11:59 pm EST).  

To explain this, the College of Social Science created a short video (6 minutes) to review what S/NS is, how it can impact GPA, and how to complete the form requesting the change.

For mistakes, students can resubmit the form.

The grades will be updated starting May 21,2020.

If you have any questions, please contact your academic advisor or the Office of Student Affairs (SSC.AcademicAffairs@msu.edu).

Please remember this is a limited time option.
