Pass-Fail Option

  • Undergraduate students may elect to take certain courses on a pass-fail basis.  The purpose of this option is to provide an opportunity for the exploration of a broader range of coursework than is normally included in specific and distributive degree requirements. Students considering this option should be aware that some institutions of higher education do not accept transfer credit taken on a pass-fail basis. In addition, most graduate and professional schools prefer that pass-fail credit be kept to a minimum.  
  • Students should contact their college, school, or Regional Campus office for clarification of the pass-fail option and for application of that option to their particular program prior to selecting the pass-fail grade option.  Conditions governing the acceptability of coursework that pertains to all students may be found in the Pass-Fail Policy in the University Catalog.
  • Undergraduate students wishing to take coursework on a pass-fail basis should log into FlashLine (link is in top right) and click on Student Tools and Courses tab to access FlashFAST to register for the course.  Only one course per semester may be taken pass-fail. 
    • After registering for the course, click on the selected course's Grade Mode. You will make the grade option change to the selected course on the Change Class Options page.  (NOTE:  Some courses such as Kent Core or graduate courses cannot be taken pass-fail and no pull-down list will display.)
  • The last day to select the pass-fail grading option varies by semester. Please see the appropriate Registrar Important Dates and Events by Term calendar for published deadlines.  
  • NOTE:  If class beginning and/or ending dates are other than the regular session dates for a full term, the deadlines for processing registration transactions may be different.  For these flexibly-scheduled classes, access the Detailed Class Search from the Schedule of Classes. After locating the course, click on the "Registration Deadlines" link to determine course specific dates.  Information is also available by clicking on the CRN links on your Student Printable Schedule, accessible from your Student Tools and Courses page in FlashLine.
