Transition to Remote Teaching and Learning
Beginning March 30, 2020, classes on all campuses will resume, mostly using online learning or videoconferencing. We expect that classes will continue with remote access for the remainder of the semester, but will continue to evaluate the spread of the virus. Your instructor should be reaching out to you with specific plans, but please contact them if you have questions.
Students in Concurrent Enrollment, or who are participating in Clinicals or Internships should reach out directly to their faculty or instructor.
Satisfactory and Unsatisfactory grades
For this semester only, students have an option to request a grade of Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U) instead of a letter grade. Here is how it will work:
- Faculty will grade courses with a letter grade just as they normally would.
- Students are able to petition the registrar’s office to change the grade to an S or U. They can petition until 30 days after the end of the semester.
- Neither Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory grade counts toward GPA
- The registrar will assign S grades for any letter grade of “C” or above.
- Guarantee Transfer courses with an S grade will be transferable based on guidance from the Colorado Department of Higher Education
- Courses with an S grade will still count toward graduation in all programs at FRCC, except in some health care programs.Please check with your advisor about these programs.
If you decide to petition for a S or U Grade, transcript will note that the S/U is in response to COVID-19. Once an S/U is assigned, the grade cannot be changed back to a letter grade.
The ”S” grade may be the right choice for many students, but not for all. For some students, this type of change may affect tuition reimbursement from employers, VA Benefits or entrance into competitive programs. If you are aiming for competitive admissions program, you may not want to opt for S/U grades.This is an important conversation for you to have with your Pathways Advisor before making a final decision.
The request for petition is forthcoming.
