  • The Pass/Fail policy gives undergraduate students the option of taking a course for credit but without quality points.

    Students receiving a grade of “P” for the course will receive course credit but no quality points. However, a grade of “F” received by students will be treated as a regular failing grade. Students who are beyond their freshman year are permitted to take one course pass/fail per semester, with a 15-credit limit throughout their undergraduate college career.

    All courses in the student's Liberal Studies program and courses that meet major and minor requirements are excluded from this prerogative. Instructors will not be notified of the identity of Pass/Fail students—this will be handled in the grade processing procedures.

    Additional information pertaining to the Pass/Fail policy can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog under Academic Policies.
