The Carleton University Senate has approved the use of flexible, compassionate grading options for undergraduate and special students in the Winter 2021 term.

Students have the option to convert one 0.5 credit grade to Satisfactory (SAT) for the Winter 2021 term. Alternatively, students who have not already requested a SAT grade for the fall 2020 term may instead request that a passing grade for one full year (fall/winter) 1.0 credit is converted to SAT in the Winter 2021 term.

Students are advised to wait until all of their Winter 2021 term grades appear in Carleton Central before making a decision. Additional information and answers to a variety of questions is available on the SAT/UNS frequently asked questions website.

If you have additional questions regarding the SAT/UNS designation, please contact to meet with an academic advisor virtually.

With the exception of failing grades assigned as a result of an academic integrity violation, Fail (F) grades for the Winter 2021 term will be automatically replaced by Unsatisfactory (UNS) in May 2021.

The SAT Request Form for 0.5 credit Winter 2021 courses or 1.0 credit Fall/Winter full-year courses will be available Friday, April 16, 2021.
