Taking a Class Pass/Fail

Pass/fail is a grading option that may be available to undergraduate students instead of a traditional letter grade (A-F) under certain circumstances. Graduate courses may not be taken for pass/fail credit. One objective of pass/fail is to encourage students to experience courses they usually might avoid because of lack of confidence or initial competence.

The following rules apply to courses taken for pass/fail:

Any undergraduate student wishing to petition changing a course grade to or from the grade mode of pass/fail after the established deadline may direct their petition to the Registrar's Office at Course instructors will be consulted regarding the petition, but the decision is made in the Registrar's Office. Petitions must include: full name, student number, course prefix/number/CRN/semester and documentation of the extenuating circumstances that led to missing the deadline.
