Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 Grading Scheme

Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 Pass-No Credit Grading Scheme

For the Fall 2020/Spring 2021 semesters, the last day for undergraduate students to withdraw from courses with grade of “W” and last date to change grade scheme from “Pass-No Credit” to Letter Grade, or Letter Grade to “Pass-No Credit” will be extended to the last day of classes for that session.

Regular university policy holds that a pass-no credit course cannot be presented in fulfillment of University Core Curriculum requirements, major programs, minor programs, or specifically designated courses (collateral requirements) of an established curriculum. However, for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 only, undergraduate students may submit an academic petition through the Dean of their college for an exception to this policy. A grade of P indicates that a student’s performance merits an evaluation of C- or better. NC indicates that a course has been failed, but that such failure is without prejudice to the student’s cumulative average. Although appropriate credits are granted to students when grades of P have been assigned, these credits are not qualitatively weighted and hence do not affect a student’s academic average. The entry NC will not keep an otherwise qualified student from dean’s list recognition. For the Fall 2020/Spring 2021 semesters only, students must request pass-no credit grading scheme on an undergraduate academic petition.
