Grading Policy for Academic Year 2020-2021

Reminder: The Spring/Summer grading policy provides a S/NRC (Satisfactory/No Credit COVID) option, rather than a letter grade, for students who select it. For more information please read the full information below.

To address the difficulty that COVID-19 and current events have presented to our students in the School of Social Work (SSW) we will be offering a modified grading policy for the academic year 2020-2021. The policy for this academic year (Fall, Winter, and Spring/Summer terms) will be:

  • All students will have the option of taking any class for S/NRC (Satisfactory/No Credit COVID) rather than a letter grade. Students can make this decision after the letter grade is posted. The deadline for requesting a change from a letter grade to S (Satisfactory) is July 1, 2021 for the Fall 2020 term, and November 1, 2021 for the Winter and Spring/Summer 2021 term.
  • Instructors will submit letter grades on Wolverine Access for all students enrolled in the MSW program. A modified grading system will award letter grades of A+ to C-, and a notation of “NRC” (No Record COVID) for grades of D+ to E. Students will have the one-time option to change any or all of their letter grades of A+ through C- to S (Satisfactory) through Wolverine Access. Be cautious in your decision since once you convert a course to S, you cannot change your mind and revert back to the letter grade.
  • Students may withdraw from a course by the last day of classes of the term without having a notation of “W” appear on the official transcript. It will appear on the unofficial transcript.
  • Instructors may choose to issue an Incomplete (I) and approve an extension with a deadline for completion of final work due in the course. An incomplete will not be permanently recorded on the transcript when the instructor submits the final grade.
  • Students who receive NRC receive no course credits. Students who receive a S receive course credit.
  • Grades of S and S/NRC will not be factored into the GPA.
