College of Science and Technology

Florida A&M University and the College of Science and Technology (CST) are closely monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The University and college remain open for business even as we carefully observe federal and state safety and health protocols. The administration, faculty, and staff in the College of Science and Technology have been working around the clock to implement processes that will enable student success.

Remote Instruction: We have transitioned to online teaching and learning for the remainder of the Spring Semester 2020. Administration, faculty, and staff are currently working remotely to accomplish the many activities to make certain that the CST is continuously ‘on the move.’ We encourage students to communicate directly with their professors and academic advisors. Also, when completing Spring Semester and preparing for Summer Semester, check the FAMU Registrar’s website for important information related to student matriculation.

Grading Policy:  The University has modified the Spring 2020 Grading Policy to allow students the option of receiving either a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) or letter grade (A/B/C/D/F) in courses that are approved to offer the S/U grade. Students will be required to request the S/U option for eligible courses. For more information on this policy.
