Spring 2020 Grading Information

Students

  1. Spring 2020 final grades were made available on the afternoon of Saturday, May 9, 2020. The Registrar’s Office has followed up with faculty on any grades that aren’t yet submitted in order to make them available to you as quickly as possible.
  2. There are no F grades for the spring 2020 semester. All F grades are being converted to NP (No Pass). You do not receive credit for a course completed with an NP grade. NP grades have no impact on your GPA.
  3. IMPORTANT: Regardless of whether or not you have already requested Pass/No Pass grading, you will initially see the traditional letter grades (ranging from A to D) that you earned. You will have until Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at 12 PM (noon) to determine whether you want to keep your traditional letter grade, or convert it to a P. In order to decide how to proceed, you may wish to review the Pass/No Pass Grading FAQ’s and/or consult with your advisor or the Office of the Associate Dean of the College.
  4. Once you have determined whether you want to keep your traditional letter grades or convert to P grades, you should proceed as follows:
    1. For courses you have already requested to convert to Pass/No Pass grading, and you still want a grade of P after reviewing your traditional letter grade – You need not do anything. Any courses that you have already requested to convert to Pass/No Pass will be automatically converted after the May 12 deadline.
    2. For courses you have not yet requested to convert to Pass/No Pass grading, but wish to convert after reviewing your traditional letter grade – You must fill out the Pass/No Pass Grading Request Form for each course in which you want the traditional letter grade (ranging from A to D) changed to a grade of P no later than May 12, 2020 at noon.
    3. For courses you have already requested to convert to Pass/No pass grading, but you now wish to keep your traditional letter grade – You must fill out the Return to Traditional Grading Request Form for each course that you previously converted to Pass/No Pass in order to keep your traditional letter grade.
  5. Official transcripts that include spring 2020 grades and/or degrees earned on May 10, 2020 will not be available until Monday, May 18, 2020. This is to allow the Registrar’s Office sufficient time to process all relevant requests relating to the Pass/No Pass policy, graduation honors, etc. for the spring 2020 term.
