The Carleton University Senate has approved the use of flexible, compassionate grading options for undergraduate and special students in the fall 2021 and winter 2022 terms.
You will have the option to convert one 0.5 credit passing grade to Satisfactory (SAT) for the fall 2021 term and one 0.5 credit grade to SAT in the winter 2022 term. Alternatively, you may instead request that a passing grade for one full year (fall/winter) 1.0 credit is converted to SAT in the winter 2022 term.
Once your final fall 2021 term 0.5 credit grades appear in Carleton Central, you will be able to request to designate one of these passing grades (minimum D-) as SAT through the SAT Request Form. You will not need to request a UNS grade. The SAT Request Form will be available Friday, December 10, 2021, on the Registrar’s Office website.
Students are encouraged to use the Hypothetical Course(s) and Grade(s) option in your Academic Audit to determine how opting for SAT in any of your courses instead of a letter grade will impact your progress in your program, your CGPA and your graduation eligibility. A full FAQ about SAT/UNS is available on the Academic Advising Centre website.
For more information, or to meet with an academic advisor please contact the Academic Advising Centre.
