Undergraduate students may elect the Pass/Fail option before the W Drop date for one course only. No General Education requirements will be fulfilled with courses taken on a Pass/Fail basis. Details regarding use of this option may be found in the Academic Regulations handbook
During Add/Drop: When you add your classes include the Pass/Fail option via SPIRE - Edit Classes.
After add/drop ends: To elect Pass/Fail or Revoke Pass/Fail click the down arrow on the Other Academic drop-down list to the left of your Class Schedule on the Student Center.
After W Drop date: If you wish to appeal for a late pass/fail after the W Drop date, you can only do so if you have significant and well documented extenuating circumstances for your academic dean to consider approval or denial.
Revoke Pass/Fail: At any time prior to graduation you may revoke the Pass/Fail option following the directions above. Revoked pass/fails from COVID-affected semesters (Spring 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021), can be reinstated by e-mailing a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your SPIRE ID, the semester you took the course, the subject and catalog number (e.g. MATH 127), and the 5-digit class number. Revoked pass/fails in all other semesters must get Academic Dean’s approval for reinstatement.
Reinstating P grades: If you elected pass/fail in a course and received a letter grade but would prefer the P grade instead, please e-mail email@example.com with your request. Please be sure to include your SPIRE ID, the semester you took the course, the subject and catalog number (e.g. MATH 127), and the 5-digit class number.
