Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory

In some Mizzou schools and colleges, students may take courses on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis. Students who choose this option are assigned an S or U grade instead of an A-F grade.

S/U Grading Policy »

Satisfactory (S)

S grades are not included in the semester or cumulative grade point average on the transcript. Full credit is earned for courses completed with a grade of S.

Unsatisfactory (U)

U grades are not included in the semester or cumulative grade point average on the transcript, and no academic credit is awarded for courses completed with a grade of U.
