Sophomores, juniors, and seniors may take one course during a semester under the pass-fail option (exclusive of PE courses), provided that the course is a free elective. It must not be a core requirement, a major requirement, or a controlled elective.
What is the procedure for getting a pass-fail course approved?
- Complete the appropriate section of the Approval Form.
- Obtain the approval of your academic advisor and the instructor of the course.
- Submit to the Registrar's Office.
May I change from Pass-Fail to a letter grade, or from a letter grade to Pass-Fail, after the course has begun?
Yes, you may change from one to the other, within one month of the first day of the semester with the permission of the instructor, the Academic Dean, and your academic advisor. See the Academic Calendar for precise dates. (N.B. Consult the ACCESS calendar, if you are taking an ACCESS course.)
