How to Request a Course's Grading Basis Be Changed from Letter Graded to S/U through Student Central
- WHAT YOU CAN SWITCH--- Only one course per semester. Note that business courses are not eligible for this grading-basis change.
- WHO CAN SWITCH--- To be eligible to change a course to an S/U grade through this web-based option, you must be an undergraduate, either in your first semester at FSU, or have a 2.5 GPA.
- WHEN YOU CAN SWITCH--- You must change the class grading-basis between the first day of classes and the 7th week deadline.
If the Permit to Change Course to S/U link is not available, either you or the course you selected is not eligible to have a grading basis switch. You may speak to your Dean's office to request an exception, and if one is given, then use the fillable PDF at https://registrar.fsu.edu/forms/ to request the change.
- Begin by clicking the My Classes tile from your Student Central Homepage.
- After clicking the tile, the Permit to Change Course to S/U link becomes active in the left-hand navigation area if both you and any of the courses you are enrolled in are eligible for a graded-to-S/U switch.
- You are prompted to complete a form allowing you to select the course whose grading basis you want to change. Select the course from the Class drop down box.
- Then click Submit.
- To access your in-progress or completed S/U Grade Basis Change request and view its status and comments, navigate to My Tasks > In Progress / Completed Forms > S/U Grade Basis Change.
- Upon approval, you will receive a confirmation email. If your request is denied, you will see an alert appearing as a notification flag in the upper-right corner of Student Central, as well as receiving an automatically generated email.
NOTE: If your request is denied and you have other eligible courses, you can select another course for the S/U switch and request approval for it. Remember that you can only select the S/U grading basis for one class per semester, and if you wish to request this status for a second class you can do so only after the first request has been reviewed and denied.
