PURPOSE: To change a course from regular grading to pass/fail, or to change from credit to audit (no credit).
WHEN: By dates specified in the Academic Calendar.
NOTES: Approval of the Associate Dean in the Undergraduate Office (107 McMahon Hall) is required to change a course to pass-fail, but not to change to audit. However, both audit and pass/fail require that the Change of Enrollment form available in McMahon 107 be completed and submitted to the Undergraduate Office.
CAUTION: Only free electives may be taken pass/fail. This excludes any course required for the major, a minor, or a distribution requirement, as well as courses (such as elementary foreign language) requiring a minimum grade to move to the next level.
No course may be changed from audit to credit after the end of the period for adding a course at the beginning of the semester.
Students pay regular tuition for courses they audit, but they receive no credit.
FORMS: Registration Change Form available in the Undergraduate Office.
NOTE: Do not inform the instructor that you are changing to pass/fail. The Office of Enrollment Services receives a letter grade and converts it to pass or fail.
