Process to Select the P/NP Designation for Spring Semester


  • When do I have to decide if I want to choose a P/NP designation
    Undergraduate students must decide between May 13 and May 19, 2020, which is after Spring 2020 grades are submitted by instructors. Students may not make a change prior to May 13.
  • If I decide to choose a P/NP designation, how do I do it? 
    UPDATED 3/13/20 

Beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, students may login to Access+ to view their grades under the student tab. There will be a link that will lead them through the P/NP selection process. Students may change their selection until May 19, 5:00 p.m. (CST) by using the form in Access+.

Please note that it will take a few days to process all of the changes requested during the May 13-19 election period. Changes will be viewable to students on the morning of May 22. Students who wish to make changes to the grading basis after the May 19 deadline must initiate this request through their academic adviser.

  • Can I select the P/NP option if I have an “N” (No report) grade? 
    Yes, students can elect to change from graded to P/NP in courses that do not have a grade submitted by the instructor before the May 19 deadline. This will show as an “N” (No report) in Access+. Once the instructor submits the grade for the course, students may petition their college Student Services Office to have the grade change to a P/NP.
  • Can I select the P/NP option if I have an “I” (Incomplete) grade?
    No, students cannot elect to change the grading basis from graded to P/NP on courses that have a grade of “I” (Incomplete) submitted by the instructor. After the Incomplete  is resolved with a grade, the student may request the grading basis be changed from graded to P/NP; this request must be initiated through the student’s academic adviser.
