UMass Amherst students taking Five College courses - We will be receiving letter grades from the other four colleges. If you would like to change a letter grade to a P grade, please contact the registrar's office after grading for Spring 2020 is complete.
International and Domestic exchange students taking classes at UMass Amherst are eligible for elective pass/fail grading, but they will not be able to request that in SPIRE. Students should contact the registrar's office prior to April 29 to select elective pass/fail grading. They should also contact your home institution to review their policies regarding credit for P graded classes.
UMass Amherst students taking courses in a study abroad program or through domestic exchange are not eligible to select elective pass/fail as those courses are not considered in the GPA on the UMass transcript. If the institution reports a P or S(AT) grade through their policies, then we will report that grade on the transcript.
