Pass/No Credit Enrollment
- No letter grade or grade points are earned. Credits taken for pass/no credit grade option may not satisfy certain academic requirements and include:
- general education courses
- courses used to fulfill English Composition and Writing Emphasis (WE) requirements
- major and minor courses except those offered as P-NC only (includes student teaching, some Social Work courses, Business Administration/Accounting internship, etc.)
- honors in the major (478) projects
- independent study (298, 498) courses
- P/NC grading option is requested using the Change Grading Basis form and must be approved by faculty instructor.
- P/NC grading option is not reversible after add/drop deadline for the respective course.1 Electives may be taken on a P-NC basis.
- For pass-no credit, grades of A, AB, B, BC, or C, are designated “pass.” Grades of CD, D, F or WF are designated as NC or “no credit.” An NC does not affect grade point average, nor does it add to earned credits.
- Students considering applying for graduate or professional schools or transferring to another undergraduate campus should keep in mind that P-NC grading may have an adverse effect on admission. Graduate and professional schools generally prefer letter grades because such grades enable them to better judge potential for academic success.
Add/Drop deadlines vary by length of course.
14 week courses have a two week add period in which a new grading option can be requested and approved using the appropriate forms mentioned above.
