Spring 2020 Undergraduate Classes to Be Graded Pass/Fail

All undergraduate courses in Spring 2020 will be graded pass/fail unless the student elects to receive an earned grade for the course.


  • Students will have the opportunity to choose to receive an earned letter grade in each class and may make that choice until the last day of spring semester classes. A new website is being created for this purpose.
  • The limit on pass/fail credits for the semester will be waived. Spring 2020 pass/fail courses will not count against the 12-credit pass/fail limit in a student’s overall record.
  • The requirement for a C-minus or better in major, concentration and Academic Writing courses will be waived for the semester.
  • The requirement that General Education courses be graded will also be waived.
  • Students on academic probation who do not elect to accept course grades will be continued to the next semester, since they cannot bring up their GPA with P grades.
  • The university moving to P/F grades will not jeopardize a student’s financial aid eligibility.
