Alternative Grade Policies for S/NS & CR/NC:


Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory and Credit/No Credit Policies for Michigan Professional Health Programs:
Acceptance of Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory (S/NS) and Credit/No Credit (CR/NC) by Michigan professional health programs in place of numerical grades are outlined in the attachment below.

While a professional health program may accept prerequisite courses graded in the binary S/NS or CR/NC system, they may still request that you report your numerical grades for those courses when applying to their programs. It is important that you check the policies of each program that you plan to apply to.
