A. In courses usually graded A-F
- A course usually graded A-F may be taken P-N by a student if the course is an elective. A course is designated as elective when it is not used by a given student to meet any specific area or course requirement including the general education program, major, minor, or emphasis. To take a course usually graded A-F as a P-N course, a student must file the appropriate P-N form with the Office of the Registrar before the end of the seventh week of the term, or its equivalent for a half-semester course.
- The “P” grade is equated to the normal “A” to “C-” grade range. P-N courses transferred in by students as required courses (a course is designated as required when it is used by a given students to meet any specific area or course requirement including the general education program, major, minor or emphasis.) are acceptable only from colleges where the grading system is the normal system as described above.
- There is a four-credit limit of P-N courses per semester for sophomores, juniors and seniors. Other courses and internships (see below) which are graded by the P-N system do not count towards these limits.
B. In courses only graded P-N
- Field experiences such as internships and student teaching, and intercollegiate athletic activities are offered ONLY on a “Pass-No Pass” basis.
- A student may earn a maximum of eight credits in the combined music/ theatre area and one credit in each area of athletics that are applicable to the total credits for graduation requirements. The maximum credit limit applies to students who are not music/ theatre majors, minors or emphases.
- Although these courses apply toward graduation requirements, they are not calculated into the cumulative grade point average.
