Grades/ Grade Changes

***Important News***

Spring 2021 Grading Policy Updates

  • All F and WU (Withdrawal Unauthorized) grades will be converted by the Registrar’s Office to NC (No Credit) in Spring 2021 (excluding students receiving VA benefits).
  • Suspension of Disqualification through Spring 2021: Students eligible for disqualification will not be disqualified through the end of the Spring 2021 semester (see Amendment D to University Policy S16-16, Probation and Disqualification, Temporary Amendment due to the COVID-19 Pandemic). Instead they will continue on probation and be connected with advising staff to help them access critical academic resources and make plans to successfully progress toward their degree objectives.

COVID-19 Academic Policy Updates


Timing and Availability

Students should be able to view their grades on MySJSU about two weeks after the last day of instruction of each semester.

Grades are only available via MySJSU, see how to view my grades.  For printed copies of your grades, order an official transcript or print an unofficial transcript from your MySJSU.

If you do not see your grades after three weeks from last day of instruction, contact your instructor.

Auditing Classes

An instructor may allow students to audit a class.  Enrollment in the class is required.  Please submit a Credit/No Credit/Audit option form (available on Forms' page).

Grade Changes and Discrepancies

Contact your instructor if you believe there has been a grading error.  If your degree has been awarded, your academic record is sealed and you cannot request any grade changes.
