NORMAL, Ill. – Illinois State University administration announces Pass/No Pass grading option for students.
President Larry Dietz sent a campus wide email announcing the option after the university switched to online classes.
The change is an effort of flexibility to help students struggling with new instructional methods said Dietz.
“What we might have considered unimaginable at the beginning of the Spring 2020 semester is now posing challenges that must be addressed expeditiously to alleviate, to the greatest extent possible, our sense of anxiety, uncertainty and disruption,” said Dietz.
The Pass/No Pass option is being extended until May 4.
Undergraduate students with a “C” or better will have a passing grade. Graduate students with a “B” or better will have a passing grade.
Beginning Monday, April 6, students will be able to withdraw or change the grading option.
