Grades P and NP are not applicable to graduate programs. Undergraduate students that wish to be considered for P & NP grading option should notify their instructors three weeks before the end of their courses. In some cases, most undergraduate courses have no P & NP grading option. Students interested for P & NP grading option should check with their instructors in advance whether their courses have P & NP option.

While a grade designation of PASS [P] is defined as a grade of C or higher, credit will be granted but no GPA points are received or computed in the cumulative GPA. The designation of FAIL [F] will affect the cumulative GPA negatively. An [I] or incomplete may be given to a student who is making steady progress toward course completion but needs more time to complete the course because of unavoidable circumstances. Incompletes not removed within the following grading period will be recorded as an [F] if there is no attempt to finish the coursework. However, if the student requires more time because of a physical or mental disability, an [X] will be indicated as in progress. Students who cannot complete the [X] within the time specified by the instructor will receive a withdrawal. A withdrawal designation [W] indicates that the student chose to withdraw from the course prior to the end grading period, or final examination. The [W] designation will not affect the GPA.
