Re: Pass/No Pass Grading Options
To: All undergraduates, faculty and staff
Oct. 15, 2020
Dear Undergraduate Students, Faculty and Support Staff,
Due to the continued impact of COVID-19 on semester operations, we are temporarily changing campus policies around Pass/No Pass grade options.
For Fall 2020, the Academic Senate has approved a policy in which undergraduate courses may be taken for a P/NP letter grade and still be used to satisfy prerequisite and/or degree requirements.
Changing the grading option to P/NP provides flexibility and could also have important ramifications for an undergraduate’s educational progress and goals. As such, we ask that instructors talk with their students about the possible benefits and costs associated with P/NP grades, and encourage them to consult with their academic advisors and their degree program(s) before requesting this change.
These guidelines are meant for undergraduates, academic advisors and faculty to inform guidance on a P/NP grade choice. Academic advisors are an important resource for consultation. For information on grade options, visit the Registrar's website . The deadline for Fall 2020 change of grade option is 11:59 p.m., Friday, Dec. 11.
