We are working with all students who receive Pass (P) or Credit (CR) grades (or their equivalent). Courses completed in spring 2020 with Pass (P) or Credit (CR) grades (or their equivalent) will satisfy appropriate letter grade requirements. Additionally, courses completed in spring 2020 with P or CR grades will be recognized and totaled as part of the 30 completed credit hours for transfer students.

In such cases, departmental faculty and campus offices have been encouraged to be as flexible with summer 2020/ fall 2020 transfer students as possible. Please inquire with academic advisors in your program with questions. We encourage you to visit individual program websites for more information or to set up a virtual appointment with an academic advisor.
