Spring 2021 Pass/Fail Decision Trees

For Spring 2021, the opportunity to select the new PS/NS option will open for students in Banner Self-Service starting at 8:00 am (EST) May 4, 2021. The decision deadline is 5:00 pm (EST) on May 5, 2021. Students may change their selection during this time period (May 4th and 5th, 2021). All decisions are final as of 5:00 pm (EST) on May 5, 2021. More information about COVID-19 Spring 2021 Grading Policy can be found on the Registrar's Office website

The Center for Academic Performance and Persistence have created a decision tree to provide guidance for students in evaluating whether it makes sense for you to employ the pass/fail (PS/NS) option for Spring 2021. This list is not exhaustive so students are encouraged to discuss their individual situation with advisors, academic support offices like the CAPP Office, Academic Advising and Planning Center, or the Office of Financial Assistance and Veteran Affairs before making decisions.
