If you choose this option during registration, you can convert the option back to a regular grade basis before the second class meeting. Pass/no pass grades are not calculated into your grade point average. You may not select this option for required courses in the major. Only one course per term may be taken on this basis.
A maximum of 12 credit hours taken through this option may be applied toward a degree. Associate dean approval is required.
