Pass/Fail information

* The grade necessary for a Pass grade is dependent on the particular course and student type.

* If an undergraduate student is taking a course to fulfill General Education requirements, a D- or above is needed to receive a Pass grade. If an undergraduate student is taking a course to fulfill a major or minor requirement, a C- or above is needed to earn a Pass grade.

* Graduate students must earn a grade of B or above to earn a Pass grade.

* A grade of Pass will not be calculated into the Grade Point Average (GPA); a grade of Fail will be calculated into the GPA as an F. If a student repeats and passes the course at a later time, the F would no longer count toward the cumulative GPA.
