Spring 2020 Pass/Fail Grading Option

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.

  • COVID-19 and Your Financial Aid: The Office of Student Financial Aid answers frequently asked questions related to COVID-19 and aid eligibility – including the potential impact of Pass/Fail and Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading.
  • 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.
