Pass/Fail Policy

Most Stetson University courses award grades at the end of the course. Some courses are offered regularly that are credited on a Pass/Fail basis. In addition, students may elect to take as Pass/Fail two courses that normally award a letter grade of A through F. With the Pass/Fail option, a passing grade (D- or higher) is reported as a P, credit is earned, and the grade has no impact on the GPA, while a failing grade continues to be reported as an F, no credit is earned, and the F is included in the GPA. A student choosing to exercise this option must do so through completion of a Pass/Fail form in the Office of the Registrar by the deadline for dropping a course without academic penalty (see the Academic Calendar for the specific date for each semester). No changes to the Pass/Fail election may be made after this established deadline.

The Pass/Fail option may not be used for major, minor, or Foundation courses, or for Junior Seminars. In addition, the Pass/Fail option may be restricted in specific courses, as determined by a College/School or University curriculum committee.
