The Austin Community College District will provide flexible educational opportunities to students including, when appropriate, a pass/fail grading option.
The pass/fail grading option is available for a course only if the college catalog specifies this option. If a given course permits two options of a letter grade or pass/fail grade, the student must declare the pass/fail option by the last day allowed for add/drop. Students may not change the pass/fail grading option status after the add/drop date.
A passing grade is defined as the equivalent of a "C" grade or better. A "P" (Passing) achieved in a course under a pass/fail option will not be used in calculating cumulative GPA. An "F" (Failing) received in a course taken under a pass/fail option will be used in calculating GPA.
A student may take a maximum of 10 semester credit hours in the pass/fail option format.
Instructional Departments, upon approval by the Dean, will determine the courses in their respective degree plans in which a student could exercise the pass/fail option.
