Changing Grade Type

Students to choose a grade type (grade or pass/fail) when they register for a course. Students may change a course’s grade type until the designated deadline. See the pass/fail page for restrictions on the use of pass/fail courses in the curriculum.

Students can use Path@Penn to change a course to pass/fail or to standard grading options until the drop deadline each semester. After the drop deadline, students can only request changes to their grade type using the Grade Type Change form in Path Forms.
