- You can't G/P/N/C a class that is S/U OR A, B, C/U graded (These courses do not offer the G/P/NC option).
- Earning a "P" in a course does NOT fulfill DEC, SBC objectives or major requirements. Earning a "P" will fulfill the 39 Upper Division credit requirement and the total credits towards graduation.
- 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 repeated courses.
- If you are registered as a full time student, you may withdraw from a class. 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.
- 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!
- It is not necessarily better to G/P/N/C or to withdraw from a course, speak to an advisor to figure out which might be best for you!
- The G/P/N/C option is available for only one course per semester, with the exception of PHY 121/123 & PHY 122/124. You must choose the same G/P/N/C grade threshold in both courses.
- Remember to verify the semester deadline for G/P/N/C and withdrawal!
- Neither the "P" nor "NC" is factored into your GPA.
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 #4 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 #1 above.
- The tutorial steps begin at 1:30.
- View the Registrar's Academic Calendar.
- View the G/P/NC in the Bulletin.
In this episode, Joe Lodato and Mary Beth Powers discuss the withdrawal & G/P/NC grading options, what they are used for, and why students might want to choose them.
