Pass/No Credit Option

Undergraduate students may choose to take two pass/no credit courses outside of the major and secondary requirements limited to the Core Electives unless otherwise stipulated by the major. Students may take only one pass/no credit course per semester for a total of two courses on the student’s transcript. A passing grade in this option equates to a “C” or better. The student may register for credit or for pass/no credit, and may switch to credit or to pass/no credit no later than the published add/drop date. Pass/no credit courses do not have an impact on the student’s GPA. The purpose of the pass/no credit option is to encourage students to take electives for intellectual exploration. This option does not affect classes that already have departmental pass/fail or pass/no credit. Additional information is available in the Registrar's Office.
