LAST DAY to request PASS/FAIL or R CREDIT

November 17

GSAS does not allow any changes to the selection of a Letter Grade or Pass/Fail or R credit after Thursday, November 17, 2022. 

Courses taken for PASS/FAIL or R Credit DO NOT COUNT TOWARD GRADUATION.  A class must have a LETTER GRADE to count toward graduation. 

After November 17, the choice of Pass/Fail will remain. 

A course taken for Pass/Fail cannot be taken a second time to receive a better grade.*

COURSES TAKEN FOR R GRADE OR PASS/FAIL

During the semester there are important dates to remember including the LAST DAY to DROP COURSES and the LAST DAY for R Grade & PASS/FAIL.  These deadlines are strictly followed.**

  • Courses taken for R or Pass/Fail do not count towards the MA Statistics degree.
  • Core classes may not be taken for R or P/F.
  • Click HEREfor further details on the “Pass/Fail” grade.
  • Not all courses are eligible for either P/F or R.
    • For P/F, check in SSOL to see if the course is eligible for Pass/Fail and select.
    • R grades must be approved by the course instructor.  You must make an arrangement with the instructor.
  • Click HERE for further details on the “R” grade.

The Faculty Adviser should be notified before the status of a course is changed.

  • *Students are not allowed to re-register for a course to improve letter grade.  (The only exception would be for a Grade of F which must be approved by the instructor, the Faculty Director of the MA Program, and the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.  While the second grade will be used to determine graduation, the original “F” will remain on the transcript and will affect the cumulative GPA that is visible on the transcript.) 

**Deadlines for half-semester courses are different from full-semester courses.  Half-semester courses must be dropped within the first two weeks.  The deadline to change the grade of a half-semester course to Pass/Fail is the first day of the fifth week of the course.  Core courses may NOT be taken for Pass/Fail or R Credit.
