Pass/Fail Policy

Courses are graded on an A-F basis unless otherwise noted in the course description.

When a course is graded on a Pass/Fail basis, the grade of P will be considered to be equivalent to a C- or better. A grade of LP (Low Pass) may also be assigned, and considered the equivalent of a D+, D or D-. A grade of F earned in a course graded on a pass/fail basis will not affect the grade point average.

When a course may be taken pass/fail at the option of the student, the student must declare his/her option in writing before the end of the second week of classes by submitting the Declaration of Grade Option form to the Registrar’s Office, or to the instructor, who will in turn submit the student’s form to the Registrar’s Office.

Once made, this decision cannot be changed.
