The primary purpose of the pass-fail option is to afford juniors and seniors an opportunity to explore course work in areas outside of their regular degree requirements without the direct application of the normal letter grade scale to their grade point average. A course selected under the provisions of the pass-fail option is assigned a grade of Pass (P) if the student earns a final grade of D- or above. The student is assigned a Fail (F) if the student earns an E for the course.
There are several important limitations and qualifications to requesting the pass-fail option. They are listed on the Pass-Fail Option Form. Forms must be submitted by "Final Date to Select Pass/Fail Option" deadline listed on the college calendar.
