Computer Science Pass No Credit Suggestion Page

Be sure to read the Undergraduate Grading Policy Exception for the 2020-2021 Academic Year and the FAQs at this link if you are considering electing the pass/no credit option for any of your current or future classes. Please note the Computer Science course(s) for which a grade of P (pass) will not satisfy a prerequisite for a higher level course needed for the Computer Science major/minor. Be sure to take this into consideration before choosing the pass/no credit option, and reach out to your assigned advisor if you need more assistance. Note: December 11, 2020 Grading Amendment (Includes New “H” Letter Grade for prerequisite courses)

  • Students will be allowed to have the grade of H recorded on transcripts for prerequisite courses in which they earned a C or better. The H grade will signify that they have satisfied progression (prerequisite) requirements. Students in a progression (prerequisite) course should be advised to complete the course for a letter grade. They will then have the option of petitioning for a H/P/N grade after grades are posted and until January 8.

  • This amends the current Academic Policy guiding Pass/No Credit for the 2020-2021 academic year and applies to undergraduate students only.

Contact your University Transfer Center academic advisor if you have any questions or concerns about electing Pass/No Credit for a course in Fall 2020, Spring 2021, or Summer 2021. Election of Pass/No Credit grading for a course during this academic year cannot be reversed after the election deadline (December 14 for Fall 2020; future semester deadlines TBA).
