THE G/P/NC


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

  1. You can't G/P/N/C a class that is S/U OR A, B, C/U graded (check the on-line bulletin for more information).
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.  
  4. The G/P/NC option cannot be selected for repeated courses.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. 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.  
  9. Remember to verify the semester deadline for G/P/N/C and withdrawal!
  10. 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.
