April 3, 2020

Dear students,

As we are all adapting to learning in new contexts, away from campus, the faculty have passed a temporary grading policy in order to accommodate the significant disruption this situation has caused to the semester. All enrolled students may elect to take any course in which they are registered for a Pass/No Pass grade for the spring 2020 semester, through the last day of classes – April 29, 2020. A Pass would award credit without impacting GPA. A No Pass would not award credit and not impact GPA.

If you wish to elect the Pass/No Pass option for your courses, you must use this form to notify the Registrar’s Office no later than 11:59pm EDT on April 29. As you are considering this, if you need to talk through your options, Dean Moore, Dean Gilson, Ms. Zalar, and I are available to advise you.

I would encourage you strongly to remain actively engaged with your learning despite the grading option you choose. At this time of uncertainty, participating in the CIM community – no matter how virtual it must be – is important for all of our well-being. 

Sincerely,

Dean Sweigart
