Host Evely Forte chats with DTH Sports Editor Brian to talk about what many deem a quintessential part of the UNC experience — Carolina athletics.
On this episode of Heel Talk, host Evely Forte talks to assistant online Praveena Somasundaram and University Desk staff writer Sara Raja about how the University and Town of Chapel Hill are holding students — found in violation of University and/or state guidelines — accountable.
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.
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.
Today marks exactly two weeks since the first day of classes began for all undergraduate students on campus, yet a lot has changed since then.
All undergraduate courses will be suspended on Aug. 24 and Aug. 25, effective Thursday evening. Remote delivery of classes will resume normally on Aug. 26.
The University has confirmed a 13th COVID-19 cluster at Rams Village Building #5, via the Carolina Together website and UNC social media.
