Pass/Fail Option Approval Form
The Pass/Fail Option
The College permits 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. In addition, a student who chooses to take a course under the Pass-Fail Option must have a minimum of 12 (twelve) additional credits from courses graded with standard letter grades to be considered for Dean’s List.
Once the Pass/Fail option has been exercised, it cannot be retracted.
The Registrar's Office works to safeguard the accuracy, integrity, confidentiality and security of the student information system and of students' academic records; and to provide the accurate and timely dissemination of course and scheduling information.
