Main content start

Last Updated March 5, 2021

For Undergraduate Students

All classes taught at Stanford in AY20-21 will be offered either "Satisfactory/No Credit only", or "Student-elected Letter Grade or Credit/No Credit". You may count S/NC and CR/NC classes taken in AY20-21 (Aut, Win, Spr or Summer Quarter) towards your Math, Science, Engineering Fundamentals, TiS, WIM, and Depth Requirements, for the A/E, ArchDes, CE, and EnvSE majors.  For classes taken in AY20-21, there are no limits on the number of S/NC or CR/NC courses, or the number of S/NC or CR/NC units, which may count towards any of these 4 majors. 

You will find that "Depth Requirements" are labelled in various ways in these 4 majors, including Engineering Depth, Required Core, Required Specialty, Focus Area Requirements, Depth Electives, Specialty Electives, Focus Electives, Depth Options, Breadth Electives, Additional Units, Senior Capstone, and Fundamental Tools/Skills -- all of these categories are depth requirements, and may be taken S/NC or CR/NC in AY20-21 and counted as part of your major.

For Graduate Students

All classes taught at Stanford in AY20-21 will be offered either "Satisfactory/No Credit only", or "student-elected Letter Grade or Credit/No Credit". For new and continuing graduate students, the following addition (in italics) has been made to CEE's graduate grading policy, on p.6 of the CEE Graduate Student Handbook:

Core courses taken to satisfy a degree’s subplan (AE, EnvEng, EES, EFMH, SDC or SEG) require a letter grade, with the following exceptions allowed: 

1. a course is offered only on a satisfactory/no credit (S/NC) basis

2.there is no restriction on the number of units taken for CR/NC in Summer 2020, Autumn 2020, Winter 2021, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021, which may be counted to satisfy the core and elective requirements for a CEE graduate degree

 

TABLE KEY

Synchronous = Available as live webinar at specified class time.

For synchronous-only classes, it may be possible to make up occasional missed class sessions, but frequently missing the live webinars will not be feasible -- please consult the course syllabus or Canvas course webpage for further information.

Asynchronous = Recorded; it will be possible to view a recording of every lecture, without needing to regularly attend during the published class meeting times. 

Please consult the course syllabus or Canvas course webpage for information on whether there are other scheduled activities, e.g., office hours, discussion sections.

In Person = Subject to change based on evolving public health regulations.
