Temporary Pass/Fail grading option now available for spring courses

Posted: March 27, 2020

Gannon University has adopted a temporary Pass/Fail grading option for Spring 2020 undergraduate courses transitioned to remote instruction, effective immediately.

Having first taking the steps to convert all spring courses to remote delivery we have now taken some time to explore the opportunities and repercussions of offering a Pass/Fail option that will best fit our Gannon students. While we are offering this as an option, please read the details below. For some of our students this short-term solution may have long-term impacts especially when applying to law school, medical school, and other graduate school opportunities.  There may be discipline-specific restrictions that could influence your academic progression related to academic probation and professional accreditation requirements.  Please discuss your options and best path with your academic advisors before making a final decision. 

During Spring 2020, undergraduate students are eligible to choose a Pass/Fail (P/F) grading option for most courses that have transitioned to remote delivery.

Details on the Pass/Fail (P/F) grading option:

In order to protect our students we have discussed this policy with faculty, students, parents, accreditation bodies, partner universities, and other education experts. We have tried to give the most up-to-date information possible for you to make an informed decision. Good luck with the successful completion of the semester and please contact your academic advisor if you have questions about your decision on this issue or any others on your mind.
