Grading Options

Pass and Audit options (Catalog Reference) can be selected through the end of the withdrawal period for each term.  Refer to the Academic Calendar for deadlines.

Pass Option

The grade of PS (Pass) is assigned to a course selected on the Pass grading option. A grade of 2.00 must be earned to receive a grade of PS. Anything below a 2.00 results in the appropriate regular grade on your record (usually D or F). Up to 13 units may be applied toward an undergraduate degree with the Pass grading option.

The Pass option is not available for courses required for completion of the major, minor or teacher certification programs without special permission from the program's administrator. Students may use the Pass grading option for Core courses that require a C or higher unless the course is also required for their major/minor.

Change of Schedule form must be submitted to the Registrar's Office in the Enrollment Services Center, Room 223 before the end of the term withdrawal deadline.

Auditing Option

To audit a course, permission of the instructor is required. AU is the grade given for the course, the units will not apply toward the degree.

Submit a completed Change of Schedule form, including the instructor's signature, to the Registrar's Office in the Enrollment Services Center, Room 223 before the end of the term withdrawal deadline.

To rescind this option, the same procedure applies, including the instructor's signature.
