What Does Pass/No Pass Mean?

In most cases, a Pass/No Pass is considered to be a way of taking a class without worrying about your grade. If you complete your course satisfactorily by getting a C grade or above, you will receive a Pass (P) on your results. But in case you finish the course getting a D or an F level, you will receive a No Pass (NP) on your results. The Pass or No Pass will not affect your grade point average.

Most students tend to choose this option because it allows them to take up courses and also have no worries about how their performance in these courses will affect their grade point averages. For instance, some students may want to explore some interests outside of their current major subject or may also want to fulfill some general education requirements using this option.

Procedure for Requesting for Pass/No Pass Policy

Before you apply for the pass/no pass grading system, you must make sure that you understand the whole application process in detail.

  1. If you are a student planning to opt for this grading system, you must consult the school bulletin to determine eligibility and restrictions on the pass/no pass options. The dean is responsible for the approval of the pass/no pass requests along with the special regulations that affect the option.
  2. The students who are interested in taking classes under the pass/no pass option must acquire the pass/no pass option forms from the dean or head of their schools.
  3. Undergraduate students may get the forms from their advisors or head of the departments.
  4. All the students must fill out the pass/no pass option forms in full and obtain the appropriate signatures. They must also return to the office of the deans of their school by the given published date.

What Does the Pass/No Pass Policy State?

This grading option is usually not allowed for any other major course. This generally includes all major and upper-division major courses along with any other courses that you might take outside of the department and apply to your major. In case you feel that you are not doing well in a pre-major class, make sure you do not change your grading option to pass/no pass policy. If you pass the class with C or a higher grade, you will not be able to repeat it for a letter grade. All the courses in the pre-major and major must be taken to get a letter grade.

Rules for the Pass/No Pass Policy

  1. Some of the courses are usually designated in the catalog as Pass/No pass courses. A letter guide is not available in those courses, and among these classes are those who have a single satisfactory standard of performance for which some unit credit is also assigned.
  2. For some other courses, you may even select the pass/no pass option instead of a letter grade. Make sure you select that option after the fourth week of a standard 12-week course or after one third into the duration of a course that is less than 12 weeks.
  3. After you select the pass/no pass option, the resulting grade is considered to be final.
  4. In some cases, you may not apply a Pass (P) grade in your major requirements only until your major division lists a Pass/No Pass course on its curriculum sheets.
  5. The pass/no pass grades are generally not used to calculate grade point averages. Besides, a No Pass (NP) grade can be considered in training and dismissal procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1. Will I get any receive units for courses that have taken Pass/No pass policy?

Yes, you will, only if you receive a Pass(P). But, if you receive a No Pass(NP), then you will not get any units. Only if you complete the course at the C or better level, you will receive a Pass (P) on your results.

Q2. Can a Pass/No Pass policy affect my grade point average?

In most instances, it does not affect your grade point average.

Q3. Are there any disadvantages in choosing the Pass/No Pass policy option?

Yes, you may be at a disadvantage in case you get a No pass (NP) as you will not receive any units for the course. This may lead to a negative consequence for the students who are on progress training or those who must complete a certain number of units in each term.
