NOT take a course as Pass/Fail if you want it to count for
a University, College, or major requirement. Students may choose to take
one course per semester Pass/Fail. A total of no more than 24 credits may be taken Pass/Fail and have it still count toward the 124 total credits needed for graduation.
might be a good option if you are not doing well in a class
but you still want to get some credit towards graduation. You won't
fulfill any specific requirements, but at least the course will go
toward the necessary total of 124 credits. Keep in mind, though, that if
eventually retake the same class (e.g., you take PSYC209 Pass/Fail this
and then retake it next semester), you'll only get 3 credits total
towards graduation. You cannot take the same class twice and get credit
You must make this decision by the last day to change registration or to withdraw from courses (usually around Week 9 and will involve a fee). Pass/Fail courses count toward your general graduation credits, but passing grades do not enter into your GPA.
