No, students cannot be required to meet outside of the times published in the class schedule.

If you have concerns about this, please contact the department chair for the department offering the course using the Colleges and Academic Departments page to find their contact information.

To add a class after the start of the semester, you’ll need a permission number from the instructor. Email the instructor to request permission or contact the department offering the course if the instructor is not listed in the class schedule. Please refer to the Colleges and Academic Departments page. to find the right contact.

You can also refer to the Registering for Classes page for more information.

It's good practice to check the iLearn, SF State's learning management system, for information about your current classes. Typically, iLearn information will be posted prior to the start of the semester.

For online classes, if your iLearn doesn’t have any information and you haven’t been contacted by the faculty member by the start of the semester, reach out to them directly via email.

If you do not receive a response or the name of the instructor is not listed in the class schedule, email the department where the course is offered (for example for PHIL 110 you would email the Philosophy Department). Be sure to include specific information about your course including the department prefix and course number, title of the course, section number, faculty member’s name, and your name and student ID number. Someone from the department will assist you. Please refer to the Colleges and Academic Departments page.

Start by consulting the course syllabus and iLearn site to determine when office hours are held and how they will be offered, either in-person or online. If you're unable to locate the hours, please contact the department chair using the Colleges and Academic Departments page to find the right contact.

The AT Zoom Support Page covers the basics of Zoom, how to use Zoom in iLearn, and other additional Zoom features. Additional support is available from the Zoom Help Center.

Through iLearn, you can sign up for an online workshop sponsored by The Tutoring and Academic Support Center (TASC): Learning Online 101: How to Be an Effective Online Learner 

To support you in developing the study skills needed to be successful in remote learning modalities, TASC has launched a fully online course: Learning Online 101. You can work at your own pace through four modules, which aim to boost your confidence in learning online, equip you with the tools necessary to be a positive community member, and give you the opportunity to use the technology you will encounter in your courses. Students and faculty may self-enroll at: https://ilearn.sfsu.edu/collab/course/view.php?id=1775

In addition, please see the Keep Learning - Student Quickguide resource for assistance learning via remote modalities.

Grades

It is possible to change your grading option to CR/NC for classes that offer this grading option. It is important to keep in mind that not all classes have the CR/NC grading option. Please consult the Registrar's website for deadlines by semester.

You can view the grading option you are currently enrolled in for each of your courses in the Class Schedule section of your Student Center. Instructions on how to elect another valid grading option for any eligible course are available here. All valid grading options for the class will appear in the drop-down selection box. Not all classes have multiple grading options – some classes are offered only with a letter grade option, or only with a CR/NC grade option.

An undergraduate student who chooses to take a course with CR/NC grading, will earn a CR for a grade of C- and above and will earn a NC grade for a grade of D+ and below. A graduate student who chooses to take a course with CR/NC grading, will earn a CR for a grade of B- and above and will earn a NC grade for a grade of C+ and below. Grades of CR/NC are not calculated into your GPA and do not have a positive or negative effect on your GPA. When you earn a NC grade, this indicates that you did not pass the class. You do not receive units for NC grades.

It’s important to be sure that any class taken CR/NC will still meet your degree requirements and needed prerequisites. Some programs will only accept letter graded coursework to meet certain degree requirements. For undergraduate students, a maximum of 24 CR grade units earned at SF State can count toward your degree. Also, some programs require minimum letter grades earned to meet prerequisites that will allow you to enroll in subsequent coursework. (These limitations do not apply to coursework taken in Spring 2020.)

Advisors can help make sure your grading option meets your educational needs and goals. Undergraduate students can access advising resources through the Advising Hub. Graduate students can access advising resources with Graduate Studies (gradadv@sfsu.edu).

If you are a student in one of the groups below, please consult with these offices to be sure you understand the impact of your choice to change to CR/NC grading:

SF State is a model of a diverse and inclusive university. Across the country and beyond, we have seen an increase in stigmatizing rhetoric and behaviors toward Chinese and Asian American communities, an increase that Professor Russell Jeung, chair of the Asian American Studies Department, has commented on in nationally broadcast interviews. At this time, rather than acting out of fear and ignorance, SF State will respond with compassion, knowledge, and justice. As with all viruses, there are things we can do to protect ourselves and one another. Please respect one another as we protect our collective health and stand in solidarity with those who are ailing and those on the frontlines fighting this illness.

Counseling and Psychologyical Services (CAPS) remains open and operational with adjusted services. In accordance with California laws, we are currently only able to provide remote counseling to students residing in the state of California. If you would like to schedule a phone or video appointment with us, please call CAPS at 415-338-2208 during business hours (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; closed noon to 1 p.m.).
