Pass/No-Pass Option

A course designation of “OPT” indicates that students have the option of taking the course for a letter grade or on a pass/no-pass (P/NP) basis. It is the responsibility of the student to check the class schedule to determine whether a class has the P/NP option. Requests for “P” grades may be processed through the Registration Office, through the instructor or through WebRunner student accounts. It is not advisable to choose the “P” grade for major coursework within a chosen  field of study. If students are planning to transfer to a four-year institution, they should check that institution’s requirements regarding “P” grades. The maximum number of “P” credits allowed toward a degree is 16, not including those with an obligatory “P” grade.
