How do I Pass/D/Fail a class?
CC Students: CC students can designate one class per term to take Pass/D/Fail (not including PE courses and other courses that only allow the Pass/Fail grading option). You cannot take any Core classes Pass/D/Fail, nor any language courses. Some majors allow you to elect Pass/D/Fail for the first course you take in the department, but it is your responsibility to confirm that with the department before choosing the Pass/D/Fail option.
Beginning with courses taken in the Fall 2007 semester, students are allowed to uncover a grade of Pass within two weeks of the start of the semester immediately following that in which the grade of Pass was received. Students have until two weeks into the start of the spring semester to uncover the grade of a fall course and two weeks into the start of the fall semester to uncover the grade of a spring or summer term course. The grade of Pass will not be used in calculating grade point average; the grades of D and Fail will be so used.
SEAS Students: The Pass/Fail option is not available to SEAS students except in very rare circumstances; any class with a Pass/Fail grade will not count toward any requirements or toward the 128 credits SEAS students need to graduate. SEAS students must consult with their adviser before opting to take a class Pass/Fail.
Deadline: The Pass/D/Fail deadline is usually the 10th week of classes. Go in person to the Registrar (205 Kent) with a completed Registration and Add/Drop Form.
