OPT TO TAKE A COURSE FOR PASS/FAIL
Deadline: Monday, May 18, 11:59 p.m.
Between now and Monday, May 18, 2020, you may opt to take one, or more, of your Spring 2020 courses on a Pass/Fail basis, if applicable. This deadline is five days after your final course grade will be posted in FlashLine. We are providing these extra days to give you time to decide whether the Pass/Fail option is the best for you. Pass/Fail applies to undergraduate and graduate courses. Taking a course for Pass/Fail will NOT affect your GPA. You will receive credit for the Pass grade and no credit for the Fail grade. The Pass (Y) grade and Fail (Z) grade will be posted on your academic transcript.
The options for Spring 2020 also waive several stipulations currently in place. These one-time waived stipulations now will allow you to request the Pass/Fail grade for courses in your major, minor and certificate; developmental courses; Kent Core courses; writing intensive courses; and graduate-level courses. A grade of D or better will constitute a Pass for undergraduate students, and a grade of C or better will constitute a Pass for graduate students. See the FAQs for more information about Pass/Fail.
Please find the form here to request to take a course for Pass/Fail and submit that by May 18, 11:59 p.m.
