COVID-19 Alternative Grading - S/NS Grading for Spring 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021

During the Spring 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021 semesters, MSU provided an alternative grading scale called Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory (S/NS).  Students completing courses during those specific semesters could elect to have the grades changed to S/NS. 

In Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021, all "0.0" automatically changed to NS.

The opportunity to change the grades exists for two weeks after final grades are posted (11:59 pm EST).  

  • Spring 2021 - May 5, 2021 until 11:59 p.m. EST on Tuesday, May 18, 2021
  • Summer 2021 - August 24, 2021 until 11:59 p.m. EST on September 6, 2021

More information can be found at S/NS Grading and FAQ - S/NS Grading FAQ
