DMACC recently announced the option for students to elect a Pass/Fail (P/F) grading option for their Spring 2020 courses in session after March 13. Please see the
Spring 2020 term grading website for more detailed information.
GPA impact: A grade of P (pass) or F (fail) is not included in the calculation of GPA. DMACC’s
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy requires a 2.00 cumulative GPA to remain eligible for financial aid.
Pace of completion impact: Grades of P/F will count towards the calculation of SAP pace of completion (number of credit hours completed divided by the number of credit hours attempted). P grades would count as a completed credits. F grades would not count as completed credits. DMACC’s SAP policy requires a 67% pace of completion to remain eligible for financial aid.
Maximum time frame: Grades of P/F will count towards the SAP duration of eligibility limits for your program (total hours you are allowed to take before losing financial aid eligibility).
firstname.lastname@example.org for clarification on how taking a P/F course may affect your SAP standing. As stated above a P/F course will not affect your GPA, but will be counted in calculating your pace of completion.
