General advising sessions are still available NOW through Success Network (by phone only) if you would like to finalize fall plans prior to the start of the term. To discuss any future advising, you can schedule an appointment for September.
Urban and Regional Planning has joined the FAU College of Science. Academic program requirements and advising will transition as follows:
2020 Summer Graduation – Urban and Regional Planning students will graduate from the College for Design and Social Inquiry. Submit an application for degree to the College for Design and Social Inquiry Office for Academic and Student Services.
2020 Fall Graduation – Urban and Regional Planning students will graduate from the College of Science; however, submit an application for a degree to the College for Design and Social Inquiry Office for Academic and Student Services.
2020 Fall Admission to Urban and Regional Planning – Beginning this term, and going forward, students will be assigned an Urban and Regional Planning advisor by the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science.
FAU is providing students the option to select Pass/Fail grading for the Spring 2020 semester. Rather than receiving a letter grade in a course, students can choose Pass or Fail grading for a specific course. Click here for Pass/Fail Grading information for Pre-Health Professions programs. Here is what you need to know:
Students can opt-in for the Pass/Fail grading from April 8-April 22, 2020.
Office of Undergraduate Studies: Guidance for Undergraduate Students in Selecting the Pass/Fail Option for Spring 2020 Classes.
If you select the Pass/Fail grading option and receive a D- or above in a course, you will receive a Pass.
If you select the Pass/Fail grading option and receive an F in a course, you will receive a Fail.
Students in Gordon Rule writing and math courses will not have the option to choose Pass/Fail grading.
Some minors and programs outside of the College of Science will not accept Pass/Fail grading. Please contact that college directly for details.
If you choose Pass/Fail grading for a course that is a prerequisite and receive a Pass, it will not prevent you from registering for future courses that require that course.
As the “P” grade does not calculate into the GPA, any course will you select to be changed and in which you earn a “P”, will not count in your GPA; a “F” grade will still count in your GPA.
If you choose to receive a letter grade, that course grade will be calculated into your GPA. Please research carefully before making your choice. For example, Pre-Health Professional programs and graduate programs may require a letter grade and not Pass/Fail grading
Please reach out to your academic advisor by scheduling an appointment in the Success Network if you have any questions.
