Students wishing to take a graded course on the pass/fail grading basis must discuss their interest with the instructor. If the instructor agrees, the student must submit a Pass/Fail Request Form signed by the instructor; an original signature is required - email consent is not permissible for changes in the grading basis.

Be aware that graded courses taken on a pass/fail basis cannot be used to count towards the 48 credit required for MEM or MF degree or toward program requirements. Once the drop/add period is over, the grading basis cannot be changed.




The pass/fail policy was modified for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. Please visit each semester's policy page for full details:
