Student FAQ

Academics and Admissions

Are classes canceled for the spring semester? (3/30)

No. Beginning on March 23, the university shifted to remote instruction for the remainder of the spring semester. Reach out to your instructor for specific information about potential schedule and syllabus changes. Please consult the USF Toolkit for Continuity of Student Support to facilitate remote student access to important resources and services, such as counseling, advising, tutoring and other needs. 

For my spring courses, can I choose a satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U) grading option? (4/3)

Yes. Due to the unprecedented impact of COVID-19, all restrictions on the use of S/U grading options are lifted in most courses. A few restrictions to this grading option apply which will be listed in the “Additional questions and answers about temporary ‘S/U’ grading” section below.

Additional Information:

Can all students request the S/U grading option?
All students can request the “S/U” grading option except for students in the Doctor of Pharmacy program in the Taneja College of Pharmacy. Students in these programs should direct questions to the Dean of the Taneja College of Pharmacy.

Is the S/U grading policy the same for students in all degree programs?
The policy is the same for almost all degree programs. There are some small differences in the policy for students in four graduate professional programs in the Morsani College of Medicine: Undergraduate Medical Education, Physical Therapy, Athletic Training, and Physician Assistant. Students in these programs should consult with their respective program directors for information on the specifics of the “S/U” policy adopted.

Please note that students enrolled in the Athletic Training and Physician Assistant programs must submit their applications no later than April 10, 2020 due to scheduled final exams on an alternate calendar.

Can I take just one course for S/U or do I have to take all my courses for an S/U grade?
You will be able to request the S/U grading option on a course-by-course basis.

How do I request the S/U grading option?
You will need to submit an online application through Archivum which will be submitteddirectly to the Office of the Registrar. The application will be available from March 30 to April 24, 2020, in the Student Toolkit. Important note: All students completing coursework in USF’s Athletic Training and Physician Assistant programs only must submit their online S/U applications no later than April 10, 2020 due to scheduled finals on an alternative calendar.

Why am I allowed to request the S/U grading option for courses that were not allowed before?
We are making the S/U grading option broadly available to you as a result of the unprecedented disruptions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of removing all restrictions of the use of the S/U grading option is to reduce your uncertainty and stress while encouraging you to focus on the successful achievement of student learning outcomes. At this time, this option is available for the Spring 2020 term only.

I already withdrew from a course. Can I still select the “S/U” grading option?
Unfortunately, students who already dropped or withdrew from a class are not eligible for reinstatement, and therefore cannot opt in to the “S/U” grading option.

Will my Instructor or Advisor have to approve my request for the S/U grading option?
No. All restrictions on the S/U grading option, including the current requirement of Instructor or other approvals, are lifted for the Spring 2020 term.

Will my Instructor know that I am taking my course for an S/U grade?
Not unless you tell your instructor. Your instructor will continue grading your work, as specified in the syllabus. The instructor will submit your letter grade at the end of the semester through CANVAS, and, if requested by the student, the change to your recorded grade (from letter grade to S/U) will be made by the Office of the Registrar.

How will letter grades be converted to S/U grades?
Based on current catalog language the following equivalencies will be used by the Office of the Registrar to update the Spring 2020 course grades in your record (with the exception of some courses delivered by the Morsani College of Medicine):

  • Undergraduate courses: The letter grades of A, B, C (+/­-) are equivalent to a grade of “S” and letter grades of D (+/-­) or F are equivalent to a grade of “U.”
  • Graduate courses: An “S” grade is equivalent to letter grades of a C or better, and a “U” grade is equivalent to a grade of C- or less.

My major requires higher letter grades for successful course completion than used in the catalog for S/U equivalency. Will the higher letter grades be used by the Office of the Registrar?
No. We are facing extraordinary circumstances, and we want you to focus on achieving the student learning outcomes in your courses. In undergraduate courses, a student must earn a letter grade of C- or higher, and in graduate courses a student must earn a C or higher, to be awarded an “S” grade for the course. All “S” grades will allow students to progress in their programs of study.

Will I be able to select an S/U grading option from now on?
No. There will be a limited window of opportunity to select the S/U grading option for courses being completed in the Spring 2020 semester ONLY. The temporary window will be from March 30 to April 24, 2020.

Can I change back to a letter grade after I apply for the S/U grading option?
No. One goal of expanding the use of the S/U grading option is to reduce your uncertainty. We believe requiring a well-informed decision that cannot change back and forth is a way to accomplish this goal.

How will the S/U impact my GPA?
S/U graded courses are not calculated into your GPA. If you have Bright Futures or other scholarships that require you to maintain a certain GPA, it will be very important for you to make sure you understand any implications of the S/U option on your GPA. If you have any questions, it will be very important for you to speak to a Financial Aid Advisor prior to selecting an S/U grade. Please remember, once you request the S/U grading option, you cannot go back.

Can I still ask my Instructor for an incomplete (I) grade?
Yes. The current plan is to manage incomplete (I) grades as they are normally done. Faculty have been encouraged to make every effort possible to support you, as long as you have been making satisfactory progress and have completed the majority of the work for the course. Please discuss the Incomplete grade option with your Instructor as soon as possible. Please consider the increased burden that unresolved Incompletes will place on you in future semesters.

Would it be better for me to request an S/U grade or an Incomplete (I) grade?
Each option has potential benefits and potential limitations. For example, the S/U grade will not help you to increase your GPA, nor will it decrease your GPA. Sometimes it is important to earn a letter grade in a course because of plans for applying to graduate and/or professional programs; and, in that case, the Incomplete (I) grade with the opportunity to earn a letter grade in the future might be a better choice. An Incomplete (I) grade, however, may prevent continued eligibility for certain scholarships. The same is true for a “U” grade. The decision can be complicated. It will be important for you to talk to your Financial Aid and/or Academic Advisor/Graduate Program Director if you have any questions.

Will my transcript have any special notations for spring 2020?
All students’ academic records for Spring 2020 will denote “Extraordinary circumstances encountered (COVID-19)” when final grades are released to students in OASIS.

How will S/U grading affect my academic standing or probation status?
Academic standing from Fall 2019 will carry forward to Spring 2020. For example, a student in good standing will retain that good standing in Spring 2020, even if that student received all U or F grades at the end of Spring Semester. A student who was on probation in Fall 2019 will remain on probation for Spring 2020, even if that student received all U or F  grades at the end of Spring Semester. If your standing improves from Fall 2019 to Spring 2020, your standing or probation will be updated to reflect the improvement.

How will S/U grades impact by academic standing or retention?
Your academic standing/retention from Fall will carry forward through the Spring Semester. If you were a student in good standing, you are still in good standing, even if you get all U grades. If you’re a student on probation, you are still on probation.

I am currently on academic probation. What happens to my standing if I select the S/U option?
The S/U option will not change your standing. If you are currently on probation, the only way to change your status is to earn the letter grades that will increase your GPA. If you earn S grades, you will still be on probation until you earn letter grades that will improve your GPA. However, if you earn U grades, you will still be allowed to remain on probation under your current probation conditions. The S/U option will not change your standing. If you are currently on probation, the only way to change your status is to earn the letter grades that will increase your GPA. If you earn S grades, you will still be on probation until you earn letter grades that will improve your GPA. However, if you earn U grades, you will still be allowed to remain on probation under your current probation conditions.

If I plan to request grade forgiveness this term, how will this be affected/negated if I select the S/U option?
If you select the S/U option for a course that you were planning to request grade forgiveness, you will negate that request.

What if I opt for S/U grading, receive a U grade, and then retake the course at a later date? Can I use grade forgiveness for the U grade?
Since U grades are excluded from grade point average (GPA) calculations, there is nothing to forgive. Grade forgiveness doesn’t remove grades from your transcript, it just keeps them out of your GPA, and U grades are excluded from GPA calculations.

How will selecting S/U impact admissions to future collegiate programs?
S/U grades may not be recognized as fulfilling admission requirements into specific colleges, departments or majors at the USF or other institutions, especially at the professional and graduate program level. While we expect most institutions will be understanding of the impact of COVID-19 on your collegiate career, it is wise to seek guidance from academic and admissions offering programs for which you are interested. that you’re d to verify my admissibility.

How will selecting S/U grades impact my participation in the Honors Program?
The Judy Genshaft Honors College program will accept S/U grades. There are no special considerations for Honors Students related to their JGHC standing, graduation, or courses. We want our students to have all the options to be able to make the best decisions for their individual academic pathways.

How will selecting S/U grades impact my eligibility for Honors at graduation?
To be considered for honors at graduation, a baccalaureate candidate must have completed at least 40 credits of graded upper level work at USF and have earned a grade point average (GPA) of 3.50 or higher for all graded coursework attempted at USF. For those students in programs requiring multiple clinical experiences (such as Nursing and Education), a baccalaureate candidate must have completed at least 30 hours of graded upper level coursework and have earned a GPA of 3.50 or higher for all graded coursework attempted at USF. In addition, to be eligible for honors, transfer students and USF students who have postsecondary work elsewhere must have an overall GPA of 3.50 or higher counting all USF courses, as well as, all transferable work attempted at other institutions.

How will selecting S/U impact meeting prerequisites for courses I plan to take in future terms?
S grades equate to a C- or higher at USF. If you have a course that specifically requires a grade above a C-, you may have to request a permit for the course in which you are interested in enrolling.

Does USF accept S grades for transfer credit?
Yes, S grades are acceptable for transfer at USF.

What if I want to withdraw from my course? (4/3)

We hope that you will not have to withdraw from your courses, but we know that sometimes a student will have no other choice. Before you make that choice, please speak with your Financial Aid Advisor and your Academic Advisor or Graduate Program Director. Students utilizing VA Educational Benefits or Tuition Assistance should consult the Office of Veteran Success before withdrawing. Students on a USF issued F-1 Visa should consult an advisor in the Office of International Services (USF World) before withdrawing. Student-athletes should consult their Academic Advisor in the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics before withdrawing. Please be sure that you are aware of potential impacts on current and future financial aid and scholarship eligibility. Withdrawal will also impact your progression in your degree program. Again, we strongly recommend that you discuss withdrawal with your Academic Advisor or Graduate Program Director before you make a final decision. To provide you with the time to speak to advisors, we have extended the date for withdrawal through Banner from March 28 to April 3, 2020.

Has the date to withdraw from spring classes been changed?
Yes, to provide you with the time to speak to advisors, we have extended the date for withdrawal through Banner from March 28 to April 3, 2020.

If I withdraw from my course because of COVID-19, what will show in my academic record and my transcript?
Withdrawals made after March 24, 2020, will be coded as Withdrawal in Exceptional Circumstances Cause (WE) in the student’s academic record when spring final grades are released. All students’ records for Spring 2020 will denote “Extraordinary circumstances encountered (COVID-19)” after the end of term processing is completed.

I heard that I can withdraw from a course between March 24, 2020, and May 7, 2020. Does that mean I will get my tuition and fees reimbursed?
Withdrawal from courses between March 24, 2020, and May 7, 2020, will be automatically coded as Withdrawal in Exceptional Circumstances (WE). WE grades do not automatically result in approval for refunds of tuition and fees. Requests for refunds are subject to current policy requirements, including submission of a Fee Adjustment Request, with the Office of the Registrar, accompanied with objective, verifiable documentation.

I know there are restrictions about how many withdrawals I can take, but I need to withdraw from my course. What do I do?
Between March 24, 2020 through the end of the spring 2020 term, May 7, 2020, the limitation on the number of courses from which a student can withdraw in Banner without submission and approval of a petition will be lifted.

How will spring semester final exams be offered? (4/6)

There will not be in-person Spring 2020 final exams; each of your faculty members will share with you how your final exam and/or projects will be offered along with due dates for you to turn in your final work. Students with disabilities should continue to work with the Students with Disabilities Services office on accommodations to ensure successful completion of the Spring Semester.

I am about to defend my dissertation or thesis. Will I need to do this virtually? (4/4)

Please contact the USF Office of Graduate Studies. They will work with you to ensure your defense is completed.

What is the plan for summer courses? (3/30)

USF will deliver a full schedule of online courses throughout Summer sessions A, B, and C, so that continuing students can maintain their academic progress and new students can begin their journey at the university. To the extent that conditions permit, we may add complementary on-campus delivery of instruction and support services in Summer session B.

Given that USF classes and student support services will be delivered online in Summer 2020, can I expect any increase in total tuition and fees? (4/6)

USF anticipates no increase in total tuition and fees for Summer 2020.

Have registration dates for summer and fall classes changed? (4/6)

Yes. Summer/fall registration has been moved to begin on April 6. The Office of the Registrar has updated all registration times for students. You may find that your registration time is on a later date than you’re expecting; while we have extended the dates that students register to ensure full registration system functionality, your priority order remains the same. It’s a good idea to schedule time with your advisor now, if you haven’t already, to have a game plan in place for Summer and Fall before your registration time is active.

Have admissions deadlines for summer and fall changed? (3/31)

Yes. Given uncertainties brought about by the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of South Florida is extending its Admissions deadlines for Summer and Fall 2020.

What does this mean for recently admitted students? (3/23)

While the current situation makes it difficult for us to predict the coming weeks, rest assured that we are working hard to ensure that you have a great first semester at USF. In the meantime, we have developed a New Student Toolkit that includes Admissions FAQ to help you and your family. 

How will support personnel help students persist and complete their degrees? (3/13)

The team of Academic Advocates and support personnel on all USF campuses will continue to use their data analytics platforms (Civitas and OAA SMART) and referral sources (via email, Intake Forms, and Archivum Insights) to monitor the progress of critical student cohorts impacting graduation and retention metrics and to provide outreach and support via remote channels.  The USF Student Success Team will continue to do everything possible to promote timely progression and completion, even under extraordinary circumstances. See the Student Toolkit for academic continuity for a list of those services and contact information.

I don't have access to a computer for participating in remote learning. What do I do? (3/23)

The university has a limited number of laptops available to students and will be reviewing all requests this week. Communications about this program will be sent directly to students. If you have not received any communications, yet believe to be eligible for a laptop, please reach out to the Office of Academic Advocacy at academicadvocacy@usf.edu.

Facilities and Services

In addition to classes being delivered remotely, are there other facilities and services that may be impacted during this time? (4/3)

I am currently residing on campus. Will I be required to move out? (4/2)

As of April 2 and in accordance with Executive Order number 20-91, USF has amended the previously released move-out plan for students still on campus. Students currently on campus, besides those approved to remain on campus, have been sent individualized instructions for move-out. Read the April 2 update.

I am not residing on campus any longer. Can I return to move out my belongings? (4/2)

As of April 2 and in accordance with Executive Order number 20-91, USF has suspended the scheduled move-out period of April 8 – May 10 for students away from campus who had planned to return to campus to retrieve their personal belongings. Students and families should NOT return to campus until notified otherwise. Housing offices and 24-hour desks will not be open on-campus while the Executive Order is in place. Given the ever-changing dynamic of the COVID-19 crisis, we are not able to predict when we will issue a new move-out schedule. We do not anticipate move-outs will begin before mid-May. USF will announce a new move-out plan after the Executive Order is lifted. Until then, personal items will remain secured in students’ rooms. Read the April 2 update.

Financial Aid

What happens to my financial aid if I drop some of my classes? (3/13)

As long as you remain in at least one credit hour and don’t request a refund of your tuition and fees for the dropped classes, most of your aid will not be affected. However, if you have Florida Bright Futures, you will be billed for the dropped hours per state of Florida regulation. Find more information on financial aid.

What happens to my financial aid if I drop all of my classes or stop attending classes? (3/13)

Do not drop classes without the approval of your Academic Advisor. If you are approved to drop all of your classes prior to March 24th, you may be required to repay some of your federal financial aid.  If you are enrolled in courses that start or end outside of the normal semester, this date may be different.  If you have Florida Bright Futures, you will automatically be billed for the dropped hours per state of Florida regulation. Find more information on financial aid.

Student Employment

Will GAs, TAs, and RAs be required to continue to work during this period? (3/13)

Yes, they will be assigned to their normal duties, although those duties may have to be altered to allow remote access. Find more information regarding telecommuting policies and procedures.

Will student employees, including federal work-study students, tutors and those in paid student government positions, continue to be employed during the period when face-to-face classes are suspended? (3/13)

Yes. Many students depend on this source of income, so all efforts will be made to retain currently employed students, even if it means redeploying them to fulfill other duties or having them deliver their assignments remotely. However, students (and all USF employees) will not be required to work if they are ill. If they are in self-isolation yet still capable of completing work assignments, an opportunity to complete the assignment remotely may be provided. Also, some students may have arranged to leave campus during Spring break, and that is allowable. However, if they travel during Spring break to currently prohibited destinations, they may be subject to required self-isolation upon their return.  Please note one potential exception: if a worker is being paid by a grant and cannot perform their duties related to that grant, it may be illegal to pay them from the grant. Find more information regarding telecommuting policies and procedures.

Can students continue to work in laboratories, studios and field sites? (3/13)

Please contact your chair or supervisor for guidance.

General

How will we support the fundamental needs of students, for housing, food and care? (3/13)

Student support services, including dining services, counseling, advising, and tutoring will also be available. See the Student Toolkit for academic continuity for a list of those services and contact information.

What is going to be done for extra sanitation of the dorms, classrooms and other gathering spaces? (3/13)

USF Housing and Residential Education is following CDC guidelines and best practices by increasing frequency of disinfection and sanitizing of high touch/ high volume areas. We continue to educate residents and staff on personal hygiene recommendations such as frequent hand washing, limiting exposure when ill, and exercising social distancing.
