Spring 2021 Extraordinary Circumstances Quarter Designation

Dear Colleagues,

The Office of the University Registrar has received notification from the Provost’s Office that Spring 2021 has been designated an Extraordinary Circumstances Quarter.

We encourage you to consult with students and share the chart on the Extraordinary Circumstances Quarter Late Grading Option web page, which explains the difference between the S/NS grading options for non-Extraordinary Circumstances Quarters and Extraordinary Circumstances Quarters.

The Extraordinary Circumstances Quarter Late Grading Option form will be available on these dates, which will allow students to change between S/NS and/or numeric grading until their degree is posted:

  • Winter 2021 – March 24, 2021
  • Spring 2021 – June 16, 2021

All changes to registration after the 7th day of every quarter result in a $20.00 Change of Registration Fee, including the Extraordinary Circumstances Quarter Late Grading Option process. The only exception is for the Extraordinary Circumstances Quarter Late Grading Option process for Spring 2020.
