grading policy

In light of all classes being moved to online or remote instruction for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester, USAO intends to limit as many academic hardships as possible. For this reason, all students will be given the option of changing their final grade in a regularly-graded course (grades of A, B, C, D, F) to a P (Pass) or NP (No Pass).

Faculty will assign a regular letter grade as planned, but if your grade has a negative impact on your GPA due to the unforeseen changes in instruction methodology, you will have a 7-day period to request the grade be changed to a P or NP. Grades of P and NP are GPA neutral but do count toward hours attempted for retention. The P grade will also count as hours earned for graduation.

Final grades for spring 2020 will be available for you to view at 8 a.m. on Friday, May 1, 2020. You will have until 5 p.m. on Friday, May 8, 2020 to submit an official request to change to P/NP. This form will need to be done individually for each course for which you would like your grade changed.
