Special Policies on Grading Options in Spring & Summer 2020 Only

Last Day to Withdraw from Classes

For Summer 2020, the last day to withdraw from classes with a “W” on the student’s transcript is the Last Day of Class depending on the session of your course, please see Summer Calendar here.

If you would like to withdraw from classes with a “W”, please submit an Add/Drop Form with your Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) signature and submit to Holly Sanders at hs932@georgetown.edu no later than the Last Day of Class.

Special Grading Policy

For the BGE Courses, which have chosen to adopt the special grading policies, the following rules apply: 

  • Graduate students may choose the letter-grade or “Satisfactory/Credit/No-Credit” (S/CR/NC) grade option for the courses listed below.
  • If you choose the S/CR/NC grade option, the following applies:
    The Grade of Satisfactory (S) = A to C + credit to the course
    The Grade of Credit (CR) = C- to D  + credit to the course
    The Grade of No-Credit (NC) = F (NC grade is recorded instead) + no credit to the course
  • If you choose the S/CR/NC option for any of the BGE courses listed below, please follow the Instructions for Changing Grade Mode in MyAccess on the OUR website (please scroll to the middle of the page) no later than the Last Day of Class depending on the session of your course, please see Summer Calendar here.
  • A transcript notation will explain that S/CR/NC was instituted because of the Spring/Summer 2020 COVID-19 pandemic only if the student is in a program that opted into the S/CR/NC.

Students should exercise their options selectively and thoughtfully, in consultation with their DGS. In making their decisions, they should pay particular attention to degree requirements, future course scheduling, and policies surrounding federal financial aid and external funding limits.

Once the grade mode for a course has been changed to pass/fail (S/CR/NC), it is not possible, under any circumstances, to record a letter grade for that course.
