SPRING 2020: How does Pass/Fail work?

Pass/Fail Grading Option

Students may elect to take one or more courses on a Pass/Fail basis. 

  • Passing (P) grades will be final grades of A, B, C, or D.
  • The instructor will enter a final letter grade and will not be informed if a student elects the Pass/Fail grading option. The student may choose to inform the instructor.
  • For courses elected on a Pass/Fail basis, the final grade on the transcript will be changed to P or F.
  • Grades of P will count as attempted and earned credits and will not affect the GPA. Grades of F will count as attempted credits, and will be calculated in the GPA.
  • If a course taken on a Pass/Fail basis is a prerequisite for another course, the reported final¬† letter grade will be used to determine if the student may progress into the next course.
