Grades

Upon completion of a course, you may log in to our site to view your grades. Please wait until your course grade has been reported to the appropriate registrar before requesting a transcript.

Plus/Minus grading system

A plus/minus A, B, C, D, F system of grading is generally used for all undergraduate courses. MU students who pay graduate fees for graduate coursework will generally be graded on the straight A, B, C, F scale. The grade D is not awarded to students who have paid graduate-level fees, and the grade F carries no credit.

Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory

Some courses may be taken (and some must be taken) on an S/U basis. A grade of S is reported for A, B, and C grades. A grade of U is reported for D and F grades. Requests for S/U grading should be made in writing. Students cannot change from one grading system to the other after the first assignment has been submitted or after the first 30 days of enrollment have elapsed, whichever comes first.

Auditing a course

If you audit a course by enrolling as a "hearer," you only submit lessons for grading; you do not take exams. Your status as hearer must be indicated before the first assignment has been submitted or before the first 30 days of enrollment have elapsed, whichever comes first. Your enrollment in the course is indicated on your record by an "H" and carries no credit. There is no reduction in fees.
