Web App to Designate Undergraduate Classes as Pass/Fail Goes Live

By Maryland Today Staff

Undergraduate students can now make changes to their grading methods under the Spring 2021 semester pass/fail grading policy using a Testudo web app, Interim Senior Vice President and Provost Ann G. Wylie announced today.

Unlimited modifications to grading methods are allowed until midnight of the last day of a course to make a change. However, if the last day of a class falls on the final day of classes for the semester, May 11, students have until 10:59 p.m. to make the change.

According to the policy announced last month,

  • Students may select up to seven credits to be graded as pass/fail for any undergraduate class.
  • A passing grade will be recorded on the transcript for an earned grade of C- or better.
  • Students who earn a grade of D+ or lower will have that grade recorded on their transcripts.
  • The normal requirements corresponding to pass/fail Grading listed in the academic catalog are waived for Spring 2021.

Questions or problems with the website should be directed to keeplearning@umd.edu, and students who have questions about grading methods, including which courses to select for the "Pass/Fail" option, should consult their academic adviser, Wylie said.
