The 19th episode of Heel Talk went live Monday morning.

Confusion. That’s what many students say they experienced last week after an initial post on the University’s registrar’s webpage detailing the pass/fail option for the fall semester was taken down. 

But last Thursday, UNC Provost Bob Blouin announced in an emailed message to the campus community that the pass/fail option would be made available for all undergraduate courses as an alternative to earning a letter grade for the semester. 

Host Evely Forte and DTH reporter Heidi Perez-Moreno discuss this and more on today’s episode. 

Episode co-edited and co-produced by Maddie Ellis, Evely Forte, Will Melfi, Anna Pogarcic and Praveena Somasundaram.
