Spring 2013 pass/fail deadline: April 1, 2013
Medaille College offers the P/F grade primarily as an encouragement for students to take more challenging courses than they might without endangering their grade point average. Students earn credits, but not quality points, for courses in which they earn a Pass (P) grade. A grade of Fail (F) is punitive and is factored into the quality point average.
Students may take a limited number of courses on a P/F basis. Although there is no limit to the number of courses to be taken P/F during a single semester, no more than ten percent (10%) of the total degree or certificate program may be taken P/F. Students may not take General Education Core courses or major requirement courses P/F. Students must consult their department office for a list of acceptable courses within their program.
P/F grades are student initiated. Forms are available in the Registrar’s Office. Arrangements must be made within the deadline prescribed. Students requesting to take a course on a P/F basis must sign and return the form to the Registrar’s Office. Arrangements to take a course on such a basis are final.
Since colleges differ on acceptance of P/F grades, students interested in advanced study at other institutions should investigate the acceptance of such grades by specific graduate schools. ("Grading System." Medaille College Undergraduate Catalog 2012-2013. p. 60)
P/F grades DO impact your eligibility for the Dean's List.
The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
