Spring 2020 Grading Policy

Please note: As a result of the unprecedented changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the faculty voted on March 25 to adopt a mandatory credit/fail system for the spring semester. Accordingly, all transcripts will include an annotation making clear that Spring 2020 classes were graded only on a credit/fail basis due to COVID-19.
