Pass/Fail Alternative Grading Option

Spring 2020 Undergraduate Alternative Grading Request

NDSU has extended the deadline for Pass/Fail (P/F) grading for undergraduate students during spring semester to May 1, 2020.  The 16 credit P/F limit will also be waived should a student meet or exceed this total.

Students will have the option to receive a letter grade or elect to receive a P/F grade.  Grades of ‘P’ are not calculated into a student’s term or cumulative grade point average, however, grades of ‘F’ are considered failed attempts and will be calculated for both the term and cumulative GPA.  Students will have until May 1 to submit a P/F grade form for one or more of their classes. 

Students should consult with their academic advisors or program faculty to determine if a “P” grade will count toward academic progress and graduation requirements in their majors, or if a letter grade is required to progress. Although general education courses typically may not be taken for a P/F grade, for spring 2020, grades of P will satisfy general education requirements. Students must complete the course for the duration of the semester as prescribed by the instructor (i.e submitting assignments; completing tests, quizzes and/or papers) in order to earn a passing grade.
