Alternate Credit

You have the choice of earning continuing education credit for some courses, an option similar to auditing a class. In this case, you do not have the pressure of earning a letter grade. Instead, you receive a "satisfactory" or "unsatisfactory" grade.

Regular tuition and fees are charged.

Courses with an alternate credit option are noted in the class schedule.  

Pass/Fail temporary policy due to COVID-19:

  • All courses will be included in the Pass/Fail option for Spring 2020 and Summer 2020.
  • Students can expand beyond the maximum of 10 semester hours of Pass/Fail.
  • The deadline for a student to request a Pass/Fail is 5/8/2020.
  • Any student enrolled in Spring 2020 and/or Summer 2020 receiving Pass/Fail grades will have no Pass/Fail credits counted against them for the 10 credit hour Pass/Fail maximum for graduation.

Pass/Fail grading

The pass/fail grading option is designed to allow you an alternative grading option.

A maximum of 10 semester hours, which apply to your curriculum, may be earned using the pass/fail grading option. Only select courses are designated pass/fail; consult the course descriptions. You must request the pass/fail option by completing a written request. Consult with the Office of Admissions and Registration for details.

You must perform at a level of C or better to receive a satisfactory grade. This grade is not included in your grade-point average but is included in the calculation of hours attempted.

If you perform below a C level, you will receive an F grade, representing no credit earned. This grade will be included in the grade point average and the calculation of hours attempted.​​​​​​​
