The Pass/Not Pass option is intended to provide students an opportunity to pursue specialized or outside interests without penalty or reduction of grade point average. It allows students a greater degree of participation in those courses than the audit system permits. Students earning a passing grade in courses for which they were enrolled on a Pass/Not Pass basis are given a “P" grade; those failing will receive a grade of “NP”. Pass and Not Pass grades are not used in calculating grade point averages. To place a course on Pass/Not Pass, students must complete a form in the Office of the Registrar, Carrington Hall 320, any time prior to the “W” grade deadline for that course.

Students may take courses on a Pass/Not Pass basis under the following conditions:
