How will choosing an alternative grading option affect my eligibility for admission to graduate/professional schools, or competitive fellowship programs outside of Mason?

Although many programs are modifying requirements to accommodate special circumstances in the spring 2020 term, we have no control over requirements for external institutions and programs. Students are encouraged to check with graduate/professional programs and/or fellowship programs to ensure they are familiar with specific requirements prior to selecting an alternative grade option. If you are not certain of a future program’s requirements, keeping the standard grade may be a safer choice.
