Temporary Measures - Grades
TEMPORARY MEASURES PASSED BY THE FACULTY 3/16/2020
1. Proposed: As a temporary measure, the College will adjust its P/D/F policy as follows: The limit on the number of units that a student may take P/D/F will be raised from 3.0 to 5.0. For courses that count toward the major, up to 1.0 unit may be taken P/D/F during the Spring 2020 semester. Students must opt to do a course P/D/F by April 10, 2020. The Registrar will create an online form that will allow students to request P/D/F in existing courses. Instructors will not be notified of whether a student is enrolled with the P/D/F option. Students will be encouraged to consult their advisors about selecting the P/D/F option, but not required to obtain their permission.
2. Proposed: In certain circumstances, e.g. in the case of a laboratory course, CEL course, or where it is clear that access and resource issues will impact our ability to assign a grade, instructors can request an expedited switch to C/NC for these courses through the Curricular Policy Committee. Any course deemed C/NC during the Spring 2020 semester will fulfill major, minor/concentration, diversification and/or graduation requirements as if the course were taken for a grade.
