Students who are majors in the colleges of Engineering, Liberal Arts, Science, or Nursing may take courses on a pass/fail basis subject to differing rules established by these academic units. This policy is intended to offer students an opportunity to take courses that will broaden their education with less immediate emphasis on the need to achieve grade points.
However, an F received in a pass/fail course will be evaluated the same as an F received on a regular basis, adversely affecting the grade point average. Students must inform the instructor of their intention to take a course on a pass/fail basis by the Census Date of the semester. Complete details and requirements of each college are available in the offices of the academic deans and in the departmental offices of the colleges.
