About this Event
Last day to apply for or change a grading option for spring semester class. Credit to audit, audit to credit, pass/fail to regular grade option, or regular grade option to pass/fail.
AUDITING A CLASS:
You may register to audit classes, which allows you to preview or review courses without receiving a grade or semester hours. Classes taken for audit count in calculating tuition, but they do not carry credit or count toward financial aid eligibility. Audited courses will appear on your official transcript but will not affect your GPA or semester hours earned. Audit courses will not count toward any graduation requirements.
Do not confuse auditing a class with taking a class under the pass/fail option.
Your instructor may set up specific requirements for auditing the class, and if you do not meet the requirements, you may be removed from the class at your instructor's discretion with a grade of WP or WF. Be sure to discuss your auditing status with your instructor at the first class meeting.
A student interested in taking a class under the audit grading option, should register for the class, then contact the student services office in his/her college or regional campus student services office (by the Friday of the second week of the semester) to complete an audit application. A regular grade course may NOT be changed to audit option and audit course may NOT be changed to regular grade option after the second Friday of the semester.
PASS/FAIL GRADING OPTION: A student interested in taking a class under the pass/fail grading option, should register for the class, then contact the student services office in his/her college or regional campus student services office (by the Friday of the second week of the semester) to complete pass/fail application. A pass/fail request by a regional campus student is reviewed by the appropriate college's student services office on the Athens campus and may be denied if an inappropriate choice has been made. A regular grade course may NOT be changed to pass/fail option and pass/fail course may NOT be changed to regular grade option after the second Friday of the semester.
Students may complete no more than 12 semester hours under the pass/fail option. No course taken pass/fail may be used to fulfill any graduation requirement (college, school, or department) other than total hours. To be eligible for the pass/fail option the student must have earned a GPA of 2.5 or better for his/her last semester of full-time enrollment or have an accumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. First semester freshmen are not subject to the GPA requirements. A student may take only one course per semester or summer session pass/fail.
Note: Graduate-level courses (5000 and higher) may not be taken under the pass/fail option. Do not confuse the pass/fail option with auditing a class.
