Pass-No Credit Grading Guidelines - COVID-19 Disruption Policy for Spring 2020 Only
Read all of these parameters carefully before electing into Pass-No Credit status. This special Pass/No-Credit adjustment is available to students with permission of the advisor within the following guidelines.
- Students who take fewer than 12 credits graded with a letter grade will be ineligible for Spring 2020 Dean's List.
- This special COVID-19 Pass-No Credit (P/NC) adjusted option is available for Spring Semester 2020 through Friday of week 14 week courses (4:30 pm Friday, May 15, 2020) and for Augustana Summer Session 2020 until the last class meeting for June/July courses or 4:30 pm Friday, August 14, 2020 for internships and research experiences. After the deadline has passed, students may no longer elect to take a course P/NC nor reverse a status of a course for which a form was previously submitted. See the Academic Calendar for additional dates.
- Students who elect into P/NC status and earn a grade of C-, D or F will earn No-Credit (NC) for the course. This includes students who are taking a course for a general education designation and coursework for the major.
- A student may not elect to take all of their courses Spring Semester 2020 as P/NC. There is an exception for summer session 2020 if a student is only taking one course at Augustana.
- Before submitting this form, students should be aware of how earning a No-Credit (NC) grade will impact their satisfactory academic progress and eligibility for financial aid.
- Due to strict State Board of Education guidelines, students in the teacher education program must have approval of their education advisor in order to elect to have their course taken P/NC.
- General Education Core Requirements may be taken Pass-No credit during Spring Semester 2020 and Summer Session 2020 only.
- Courses required for a major or minor may be taken Pass-No Credit during Spring Semester 2020 and Summer Session 2020 only.
- Instructors will turn in letter grades for all students. In cases where students have elected the Pass-No Credit option, the grade will be converted for A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+ and C grades into CR (credit); and C-, D and F grades into NC. This rule will not apply to courses which are mandatory Pass-No Credit which will be graded by instructors as P (CR) or NC.
- Neither P (CR) nor NC grades will be used in computing Augustana grade-point averages, but these courses do impact the number of credits earned and attempted.
- Students should be aware that Augustana cannot control the use made by other colleges and graduate and professional schools of Pass (P or CR) and No-Credit (NC) grades that appear on the transcripts of Augustana students. Students should consult potential graduate programs and/or licensure organizations before electing into P/NC status.
