Taking a Class Pass/Fail

Pass/fail is a grading option that may be available to students instead of a traditional letter grade (A-F) under certain circumstances. One objective of pass/fail is to encourage students to experience courses they usually might avoid because of lack of confidence or initial competence.

The following rules apply to courses taken for pass/fail:

Any student wishing to petition changing a course grade to or from the grade mode of pass/fail after the established deadline may direct their petition to the Registrar's Office at registrar@ucmo.edu. Course instructors will be consulted regarding the petition, but the decision is made in the Registrar's Office. Petitions must include: full name, student number, course prefix/number/CRN/semester and documentation of the extenuating circumstances that led to missing the deadline.
