Grade not included when computing the GPA.
Student teaching, practica, and special courses are graded as satisfactory or unsatisfactory ("S" or "U"). Other courses at the undergraduate level may be taken under a pass or fail ("P" or "F") option.
In computation of the required grade point average (GPA) for retention and conferral of a degree, the total number of quality points (grade points times course semester hours) is divided by the total number of semester hours for which letter grades are received (see the Grading System for grade points). All regulations tied to a specific grade average should be interpreted to mean the numerical average associated with that specific grade. Hence, the required “C average or better” is interpreted as “2.0 average or better.”
Course work completed in any student classification (including non-degree) will be included in the undergraduate or graduate GPA as determined by the level of the course.
With the approval of the student’s assigned Academic Advisor, undergraduate students may take selected courses on a Pass/Fail (P/F) basis using the Grade Mode Change form. All grade mode changes must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the deadlines listed on the Academic Calendar.It is the responsibility of the student to understand the restrictions and implications surrounding usage of Pass/Fail grades.
The pass/fail option may not be used for any University or departmentally required course. Students should see their advisors for advice of courses to be taken on the pass/fail basis. Courses taken with the pass/fail option may not be used to fulfill General Education requirements, other University requirements, or to fulfill the student’s intended major requirements. However, the foreign language admission requirement may be taken on the pass/fail option.
No more than six semester hours or two courses (whichever is greater in credit) per degree may be taken on the pass/fail basis. A failed course taken on the pass/fail basis counts as part of the maximum six semester hours and is computed in the GPA. Courses graded only on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis are not considered as part of the allowable 6 semester hours of pass/fail.
Students may change from the pass/fail system in any course to the conventional letter grade system before the end of the tenth week of a fall or spring semester (see Academic Dates and Deadlines). Courses changed from the pass/fail grading system to the conventional letter grade system prior to the published deadline do not count as part of the six semester hours or two courses permitted to be taken on the pass/fail basis.
With the approval of the student’s assigned Academic Advisor, undergraduate students may choose to audit a courses using the Grade Mode Change form. All grade mode changes must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the deadlines listed on the Academic Calendar. Instructors are not required to grade work of students auditing a course. No credit is earned for an audit course. Students may change from the audit to the conventional letter grade system on or before the end of the fourth week of a fall or spring semester (see Academic Dates and Deadline). Students must have the instructor's permission to change to an audit after the end of the drop/add period. Out-of-State fees are not assessed for audit courses. Out-of-State students changing from audit to the conventional letter grade system will be assessed out-of-state fees.
Exams are scheduled during the Final Examination week of the fall and spring semesters, and may be scheduled on Saturday. It is the student's responsibility to review the final exam schedule and know when/where the exam may occur (see the Academic Calendar). The final exam schedule can be found here.
Final exams for summer are scheduled by the instructor.
