EP/F Deadline for AS&E undergraduates
For Spring 2021, the Exceptional Pass/Fail (EP/F) grading method has been reinstated. EP encompasses all grades from A+ through D–. The grade of F will remain, and an F and will be factored into a student's GPA. EP will confer credit but no grade points for GPA calculation and will fulfill all degree requirements, including those for concentration or major. Undergraduate students may elect EP for any or all of their courses for Spring 2021. The default option for all students will remain letter grading or the grading system in which the course was set up (e.g., P/F. CR/NC, S/U, etc.).
The deadline to opt in for EP/F grading is 3 p.m. (Eastern Time) on May 5, 2021. Note that this deadline is earlier than previous semesters to allow students to contact Student Services during business hours if they encounter an error with the form.
Petitions will not be reviewed for students who miss the deadline to opt into EP/F. The AS&E faculty expect and intend that EP/F will not be used in subsequent semesters after Spring 2021.
