Save the Date: North Texas Giving Tuesday is May 5

Deadline for Pass/Fail option moved to May

As we continue our conversion from face-to-face classes to online learning, the University is making adjustments to facilitate the transition. Accordingly, Pass/Fail dates are being extended for the spring 2020 semester. These adjustments are:

  • Students have until Friday, May 22, to elect a course or courses to be graded Pass/Fail. See the list of courses eligible for Pass/Fail grading.
  • Grades for the spring semester will post on Wednesday, May 20, and students will have two days after grades post to elect to change their grades from letter grade to Pass/Fail for eligible courses.
  • There is no change in drop date for the spring semester. It remains Tuesday, April 28.
