THE G/P/NC


TOP 10 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE G/P/NC OPTION:

  1. Neither the "P", "W" or "NC" are factored into your GPA.
  2. Earning a "P" in a course does NOT fulfill DEC or major requirements, although you will earn the credits toward the number you need to graduate and you will earn upper division credit for classes 300 and above.
  3. You can't G/P/NC a class that is S/U or A, B, C/ U graded (check the bulletin for more info).
  4. The G/P/NC option is available for only one course per semester (regardless of the number of credits of the course), with the exception of PHY 121/123 & PHY122/124.  You must choose the same G/P/NC threshold in both courses.  Summer I and II is considered one semester.
  5. If you are registered as a full time student, you may withdraw from a class until the withdrawal deadline (and receive a "W" on your transcript) as long as you maintain at least 12 credits.  If you cannot withdraw from a class because it will put you below 12 credits, you might want to consider the G/P/NC option.
  6. It is not necessarily better to G/P/NC or withdraw from a course, speak to an advisor to figure out which might be best for you!
  7. Talk to your professor about how you are doing in a course before deciding on an option because you might be doing better than you think!
  8. Remember to verify the semester deadline for G/P/NC and withdrawal!
  9. The G/P/NC option cannot be selected for repeated courses.
  10. If you are a TAP recipient, note that if you earn a "P" or "NC" in a course, it may affect your eligibility to receive TAP in future terms.
