The University expanded its pass/fail option for all undergraduate courses as an alternative to earning a letter grade for the Fall 2020 semester. Students have until Nov. 17, the last day of classes this semester, to elect the option for a course. Courses will receive one of three grades: pass, low pass or fail. Grades of C-, D+ or D will be converted to a Low Pass and cannot be used for graduation requirements, according to the message. Because of the shift in grading policies, the University will suspend the Dean’s List and the class rank for the fall semester.
