Full-time students may elect to take one course each semester, including courses which fulfill Liberal Education requirements (except ENG 105), on a pass/fail basis. This may be in addition to courses in physical education, which students may wish to take on a pass/fail basis, or any course with mandatory pass/fail grading. The intention to take any course on this basis must be stated at the time of registration or by the deadline posted on the academic calendar. The decision to take a course on a pass/fail basis is final, and cannot be subsequently reversed. Quality points for passing grades are not calculated in the grade point average for pass/fail courses, but failure grades are calculated in the grade point average. Students who wish eligibility for Dean’s List should consult the catalog section regarding the possible effects of pass/fail grading on Dean’s List eligibility.
