  • 2020-2021 Undergraduate Bulletin

    In reference to Pass/Fail:
    http://bulletin.du.edu/undergraduate/academicpoliciesandprocedures/

    In recognition of the unique challenges that students face during the COVID-19 pandemic, the University instituted changes in grading systems for academic terms affected by the pandemic. The University gives all undergraduate students the option to convert one letter course grades per term Pass/No Pass mode.

    The following definitions apply to these grades:
    • Pass Plus (P+) is defined as institutional credit with a grade of C- or higher.
    • Pass (P) is defined as institutional credit with a grade of D+, D, or D-.
    • No Pass (NP) is defined as no institutional credit because the grade is lower than D-.

    For a course where a student elects the P+/P/NP grade, that course will not be calculated in a student's GPA. However, standard letter grades for the remaining courses will be calculated in a student's GPA.

    Pass grades cannot be applied to major or minor requirements. They are equivalent to D+, D, or D-, and for that reason they will not apply to undergraduate majors or minors.
