A student with sophomore or higher standing who is carrying a full-time course of study may elect one course per semester on a Pass/Low Pass/Fail (P/LP/F) basis, up to
20 credits, to be applied toward the degree. A Pass (P) grade is defined as quality of work equivalent to a C- or better. A Low Pass (LP) grade is defined as quality of work equivalent to a D+, D, or D-. Courses applied to the major or minor and courses used to meet general education requirements may not be taken on a P/LP/F basis unless the course has been designated as only carrying the P/LP/F grade. Courses graded P or LP carry full credit toward graduation but are not included in the computation of the cumulative GPA. Courses graded F do not carry credit toward graduation and are included in the computation of the cumulative GPA.
No course originally taken on a graded basis may be retaken under the P/LP/F option, although a course originally taken on the P/LP/F option and failed may be retaken on a graded basis. The P/LP/F option is not available in courses that are taken off campus. Students indicate their desire to take a course P/LP/F prior to or during the first two weeks of the semester.
