Taking a Class Pass/Fail

Overview

Eligibility:

Sophomores and above have the option of taking a class pass/fail. There are various stipulations regarding eligibility. Please read the full eligibility requirements here

Deadlines:

You have until the end of the add/drop period to select pass/fail grading. 

You then have until the withdraw deadline to elect to revert from pass/fail back to graded status.

See Academic Calendar for exact deadlines for each semester.

Note: 

If you are on a pre-professional track, like pre-med, you may not want to take required pre-medical classes pass/fail, even if they are eligible based on A&S criteria. Consult with your CASPAR adviser and the relevant pre-professional advising office (for ex. HPAO).
