We recently learned of a system issue affecting a small number of students’ pass/fail selections. The pass/fail option was not consistently passed from CU Boulder Class Search to student records at the point of enrollment for Summer 2019, Fall 2019 and Spring 2020. This issue has since been resolved and will not impact pass/fail selections for future semester enrollments.

We recently contacted students about this issue and how to resolve (see Registrar's E-memo section below). To manage this process and potential volume of requests, we’re implementing the following steps:

  1. Extend students' self-service functionality through the last day to drop a class deadline for Spring 2020. This is prorated for special session classes, some of which are no longer eligible, and applies to Main Campus and Continuing Education classes.

  2. Provide colleges/schools with a report of students who changed any class to pass/fail during this two week window in order to review or communicate with students about pass/fail policies. Look for an update in an upcoming edition of the Registrar Network once this is available.

  3. Accept special action forms until the end of the semester for students who selected pass/fail, but who need to be changed back to letter grade for degree applicability reasons.

If you receive any requests for Summer or Fall 2019 courses, we ask that you carefully consider each request and submit a change of record form. We ask that record changes not be submitted for students who have already graduated.

We apologize for any confusion or frustration this error may have caused students. Please contact your dean’s office or Kristi Wold-McCormick if you have questions.
