Exclusion List

This list should serve as a guide to inform your conversations with your academic advisor. Final decisions will be made by the dean’s office.

  • In Spring 2021, S/U is not an option for any courses that are taken by graduate students.
  • Please review the list carefully, as many classes are excluded for specific majors but not necessarily for all individuals enrolled in the course.
  • Any student found in violation of the University’s honesty policies forfeits the usage of the S/U grading option for the course(s) in question for the Spring 2021 semester.
  • You must complete your S/U course(s) to earn academic credit. Make sure to meet all course expectations. Refer to your course syllabus or contact your professor, if you have questions.

If you have questions about specific courses on the list, please contact your dean's office.
