GSAS Emergency Policy Amendments
[Spring 2020 grading update: 4/10/2020]
For spring 2020 only, all GSAS students enrolled in any course at the University will be graded on an “Emergency Satisfactory/Emergency Unsatisfactory” basis. This includes students who are taking courses at other Harvard Schools.
- A clear notation of SEM/UEM will be included on all transcripts for the spring 2020 term to indicate that courses were graded SEM/UEM due to extraordinary circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
- All cases where students have already chosen the SAT/UNSAT option will have that grade option converted to the SEM/UEM basis.
The FAS Registrar’s Office will be implementing this new grading structure over the coming week. Faculty have been instructed to, wherever possible, provide qualitative letters of recommendation if further explanation of a student’s grade is required.
