Pass/Fail is a grading system that is typically used for specific courses at UTA. Due to the ongoing, extenuating hardships students have faced as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic, UTA has elected to temporarily extend an opt-in pass/fail grading system to select courses that normally carry a letter grade (A, B, C, D, F).
The Temporary Pass/Fail Fall 2020 Grade Policy will allow students to keep their earned letter grade or request the earned letter grade be replaced by a P/F grade for select Fall 2020 courses. Students may choose to elect the P/F option to replace a passing grade (A, B, C, D for undergraduate students; A, B, C for graduate students) with a “Pass” or “P” grade. Because this decision is not reversable and may have short- and long-term consequences related to student progression, financial aid eligibility, and post-graduation plans, students will be required to indicate they have consulted with appropriate campus offices before making a pass/fail election. PLEASE NOTE: In Fall 2020, students may only elect the pass/fail grading for two (2) courses.
