Notes:

  1. Can change back to graded enrollment through mid-term.
  2. The University of Chicago has a pass/no credit option where passing grades are converted to P and failing grades are converted to a non-punitive, non-credit, non-gpa-effecting N.
  3. Can change back to a graded enrollment through week 6.
  4. Students have the ability to change the pass/fail back to a grade partway through the following semester.
  5. Can change back to a graded enrollment through week 6. The KU deadlines were recently extended because students and faculty felt that more time was needed to make an informed decision.
  6. Can change back to a graded enrollment through week 9.
  7. Two weeks after mid-semester grades are due.
