The Texas A&M administration announced Saturday, March 21 that temporary changes to grading, Q-drop and withdrawal deadlines were recommended by the Faculty Senate Executive Committee and approved by President Michael K. Young. Details are outlined in this message
Students now can choose Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) grading for any course in which they are enrolled in the spring semester 2020. Students have until 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 28 to make changes to their grading options. Additional guidance to students on how to opt-in to S/U grading will be provided next week. This may not be applicable to students in first professional degree programs who should contact their program for grading information.
The Q-drop and Withdrawal deadline has been extended to 5 p.m. Friday, April 24. Q-drops after Spring Break will not count toward the institutional limit of four, nor the state limit on drops.
Any student considering the change from graded to S/U grading may need to consult with an advisor to understand the implications on future plans, including progress toward a degree or financial aid.
