Learning Abroad Center

Change of Grading Option

Policy Statement

Students may change their grade option from A/F to S/N or vice versa during the initial add/drop period, if the program course may be taken S/N. Students may not change their grading option for a course after the initial add/drop period. UMN deadline timeframes supercede those of the affiliate/program provider or host institution.


Students must first inquire with the Learning Abroad Center program staff members that work with the program. If the LAC allows S/N grading for the program, students should then consult with the program staff onsite to request to change the grading method. The initial add/drop period begins on the program start date.

Requests for retroactive grade base changes are very rarely approved, and typically require documentation of a technical error to be considered.
