- Earning a P or NC in a course does NOT fulfill DEC, SBC, major, or minor requirements.
- Earning a P counts toward the 39 upper division credit requirement and the total credits toward graduation.
- You cannot G/P/NC a class that is S/U or A,B,C/U graded. These courses do not offer the G/P/NC option.
- If you are a TAP recipient, note that if you earn a "P" in a course, it may affect your eligibility to receive TAP in future terms.
- The G/P/NC option cannot be selected for 2nd or more attempts of the same course.
- You cannot withdraw from a class if that will result in less than 12 enrolled credits (if you are a full-time student). In that situation, you might want to consider the G/P/NC option.
- Talk to your professor about how you are doing in a course before deciding on an option. You might be doing better than you think!
- The G/P/N/C option is available for only one course per semester.
- Neither the P nor NC is factored into your GPA.
- Make your decision by the semester deadline for G/P/NC and withdrawal, and speak to an academic advisor if you have any questions.
If the G/P/NC option does not appear for a selected course, it may be due to one of the following reasons:
- You are repeating the course. Refer to #5 above.
- You already selected the G/P/NC option for a different course. Refer to #8 above.
- The course is not G/P/NC-able. Refer to #3 above.
In this episode, Joe Lodato and Mary Beth Powers discuss the withdrawal and G/P/NC grading options, what they are used for, and why you might want to choose them.
