Eau Claire (WQOW)- UW-Eau Claire students may soon be able to decide how they want their final spring semester grades calculated.
The Academic Policy Committee of the University Senate forwarded a proposal to the Senate Executive Committee Friday to implement satisfactory or unsatisfactory grading (S/U) curriculum for the spring semester.
The proposal describes that students who receive a grade of C or higher will earn a satisfactory grade, and a C- or below would be unsatisfactory. Student Body President Charlie Johnson says the new grading policy could allow students to choose S/U or keep the standard letter grade based on individual requirements for the future.
"A lot of people want this to be a decision that they can make themselves," said Johnson. "There are so many different parts that come into play here, so I think that is something that everyone should take into account."
Johnson says the new policy would not effect their GPA. The university says it will vote on the proposal sometime in the next week-and-a-half.
