Saturday, October 3 is the deadline to choose a pass/no pass option for full term Fall classes.
In some classes you can choose the P/NP grading option rather than a letter grade. Grades of P (pass) and NP (no pass) are not factored into your GPA. A P grade is a passing grade indicating satisfactory completion of course requirements. A NP grade is not a passing grade but will not hurt your GPA.
This grading option is not intended for courses required by your major. Transfer students should meet with a counselor prior to taking math or English composition courses via the P/NP grading option. Generally, math and English composition courses should be taken for letter grade.
For AA/AS degrees, up to twelve semester units may be P grades instead of letter grades.
