Pass/No Pass Grading Option
Most CSM courses are graded on the basis of the standard letter grades (A, B, C, D, F). Some courses are graded on a Pass (P) or No Pass (NP) basis, and are so designated in the schedule of classes. Still other courses offer the student the choice between letter and Pass/No Pass grading; students electing the Pass/No Pass option in such courses must submit the appropriate form to the Office of Admissions and Records within the first 30% of the duration of the course. Changes are not permitted thereafter. For more information, please visit the Admissions & Records website.
Students electing to use the PASS/NO PASS option for a course should use the student WebSMART account to make this designation. After students have registered for a class, on WebSMART find "grade mode." "Grade mode" allows students to select either a letter grade or pass/no pass grading option if the option exists. (Not all courses offer the P/NP option.) For further details about using the pass/no pass option, please visit the Grades and Scholarships webpage.
