HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: S-U Option Deadline:
The deadline to request an S-U option for classes is this Friday, September 11 at 5:00pm. Subject to college degree program and department guidelines, students may take elective course work and earn grades of S (Satisfactory) or U (Unsatisfactory). A grade of S is equal to a C or better. Grades earned under the S-U option do not carry grade point values and are not computed in the University of Florida grade point average. Such grades are included in a student's permanent academic record and are reflected on the transcript. Once the S-U option is approved, students cannot revert to a letter grade.

Students choosing the S-U option must be in good standing and cannot be on university academic probation. To elect the S-U option, students must obtain the approvals indicated on the form. They can elect the S-U option for only one course each term; this option is in addition to courses that are taught only on an S-U basis. Courses taken to fulfill general education, writing and math (Gordon Rule), major and minor requirements cannot be taken S-U. The S-U option most commonly is used for foreign language courses.

To request the S-U option, pick up the form from the Registrar's Office in Criser Hall. According to the form, you will need to get approval from your college, department, and instructor, so plan ahead if you would like to choose this option for a course.
