The College permits undergraduate juniors or seniors to employ a Pass-Fail Option in one course each semester for a total of four Pass-Fail courses. The grade of "P" is given to students who successfully complete a course in which they have exercised the Pass-Fail Option. The student who fails such a course will receive a grade of “F’’ which is counted the same as any other failure.
The Pass-Fail Option can be used only in a course which is a free elective. No course taken as Pass-Fail can fulfill a General Education, major or minor requirement. Any student may take up to two Foreign Language courses even if this exceeds the maximum number of Pass-Fail courses allowed as long as these courses are not requirements of the major, minor, or General Education.
The student who passes such a course will receive a grade of “P’’ with no quality points figured in the cumulative average.
Once the Pass/Fail option has been exercised, it cannot be retracted.
Graduate students may not take a course pass/fail.
