Message from Vice Provost for Academic Excellence on Alternate Grading Option
Welcome back to campus! We are excited to offer a wide array of learning opportunities for students, from face to face to completely online and varying options in between. Under these confusing conditions, we recognize the continued importance of alternate grading option for students who may need it, whose academic and career goals make it a viable choice.
For each undergraduate course completed, students will have the option of replacing the letter grade earned with an alternative grade that will not affect GPA calculations.
The alternate grades available to undergraduates are as follows:
Pass (P). Grades of C or better will be converted to a P, allowing the course to count as a prerequisite, any program requirement, or any other university requirement, and will allow progression to higher courses.
Credit (CR). Grades of D will be converted to a CR, allowing the course to count for certain general education courses or as pre-requisites in certain (but not many) majors.
No Credit (NC). Grades of F will be converted to NC, which means the student must retake the course for credit, but the GPA will not be negatively impacted.
The updated form for Fanuchanan 2021 is available online: click Alternative Grading Option to download the form. You must complete one form for each course. The consent of your instructor is required after October 6, 2021.
Your advisor must be consulted at any time in the semester. If you have trouble finding an advisor, please contact the Triton Advising Center. Requests may not be submitted after the last day of classes, December 10, 2021.
