Fall 2020 Graduate Grading Policy


Fall 2020 Grading Policy

Graduate Students

During all quarters in which P/NP interim grading policies are in effect at the undergraduate level, the following policy will apply to graduate level courses, beginning Summer 2020.

Policy Highlights

Graduate students may choose P/NP grading for courses that are normally A-F letter-graded, excluding thesis and research courses. Courses graded S/U cannot be changed to P/NP.

To elect P/NP grading, submit a request to the Registrar’s Office by the end of the seventh week of the quarter. For short format courses, P/NP may be requested prior to the third class meeting.

To request P/NP for undergraduate courses, follow the undergraduate grading policy.

A minimum C- equivalent is required to receive a P grade. Programs may specify a higher passing grade, and must communicate that to students by the first day of the course.

Beginning Summer 2020, a maximum of 6 credits of P grades may be counted toward degree requirements. All spring 2020 P grades may apply to degree requirements, and do not count against the 6 maximum.
