Can I take a course on the Pass/Fail basis?
Yes. But observe the following:
- To receive credit for an elective taken pass/fail, you must earn the minimum passing score as designated by the instructor of the course. If an A, B, C, or D is earned, the symbol 'CR' will be assigned and no grade points will be calculated into your UT GPA. You will simply receive credit for the course. If a grade of F is assigned, however, the grade is calculated into your UT GPA and all ensuing penalties apply.
- Courses taken on a Pass/Fail basis will be graded as CR or F and can ONLY be used as ELECTIVES.
- A student must have received at least 30 hours of college credit PRIOR to registering for any course on a pass/fail basis unless the course is offered ONLY as pass/fail. Check with an academic advisor to be sure.
- No more than two courses may be taken on a pass/fail basis per semester or over the entire summer session.
- The grade status of a course cannot be changed after the official University deadline in the Course Schedule.
- The grade status of a course can ONLY be changed ONCE. Liberal Arts students are permitted to take up to sixteen hours of classroom or correspondence credit in elective courses on a pass/fail basis.
