Emergency Student Assistance Fund
Recognizing the financial hardship that is now being faced by many of our students, the University, with the support of generous donors, has established the Emergency Student Assistance Fund, which will help students with uncovered and unplanned expenses. Students may apply for up to $500 to meet covered expenses.
- Interested students can apply to use the fund.
Changes to academic policies and procedures (Spring 2020 only)
Karl Schonberg, Vice President and Dean of Academic Affairs, in consultation with faculty leaders, has made the following changes to academic policies for the Spring 2020 semester only:
- The deadline for students to withdraw from courses is extended to May 1. Course withdrawals during this semester will not count toward the limit of two withdrawals in a student’s career at SLU.
- The deadline to request pass/fail grading is extended to May 1. Pass/fail grades during this semester will not count toward the limit of four p/f grades in a student’s career at SLU. The process for requesting p/f grading remains unchanged (you must complete and sign the appropriate form, available on the Registrar’s Office website, then scan/e-mail it to the Registrar’s Office (email@example.com) and you must get approval from your instructor, which they can e-mail to the Registrar’s Office). Limits on the number of p/f courses allowed in a semester, as well as restrictions on p/f grading in FYS sections and in major/minor courses, are suspended for this semester only.
- Fall 2020 course registration will be delayed by two weeks, to the week of April 20, to allow faculty and students more time to transition to remote learning while anticipating planning for the fall. Fall course information in APR2 will be available as planned, beginning next week.
Please note that you have until the last day of classes to submit a withdrawal or pass/fail request, so you should think carefully and consult with your professor and your academic advisor before choosing one of these options for a course.
