My school is now using a Pass/Fail system instead of grades. Will this impact my enrollment?

At this time, our office is still in discussion about how a pass/fail grading system might affect our admissions process. It is an important topic that we are considering thoughtfully, with a student-centered approach, and we are working to develop fair and reasonable measures for evaluating students' academic performance and progress during under these unusual circumstances.

We would never hold a pass/fail system against a student in the admissions process, and it likely will not have any negative impact on admitted students as long as they pass their required/core classes.
