Students who are registered into active classes with the A-F grade type are eligible for the alternative grading mode.
Students who were grade sanctioned because of a decision by the Honor Committee, irrespective of the date of such a decision, may not choose the alternative grade mode for the affected course. Academic units may not use the alternative grading model to change a course grade that was assigned to a student as a result of a decision by the Honor Committee.
To ensure graduate students make the best selection for themselves and maximize their potential for long-term academic and professional success, it is critical that:
1) Graduate students seek advising and guidance from their advisor, mentor and/or coordinator prior to making a decision about their courses; and
2) Graduate students determine the impact electing an alternative grading option may have on financial aid, licensure, admission to professional programs, scholarships, fellowships, among others.
