Fall 2020 Grading Policy

Purpose of the Policy

At its regular meeting on September 1, 2020, the University Senate of Humboldt State University recommended to the President a temporary change of grade mode deadline during the Fall 2020 term in credit/no credit optional courses to the last Friday of instruction. Further, the University Senate recommended a temporary change in the add/drop deadline during the Fall 2020 term to the first Monday of the third week of instruction (September 14, 2020). The University Senate policy historically makes such recommendations (such as the one made in 2015).
