Guidelines for Students on Spring 2020 Pass/No Credit Grading Option

April 13, 2020; 4:20 p.m.

For the Spring 2020 semester only, LSU students can elect to have the final grades for specific courses recorded on their official transcripts as a Pass or No Credit (P/NC) instead of the usual +/- letter grade. For those who seek to retain the +/- grading framework for all of their courses, there is no action necessary. For those who are considering transitioning one or more classes to a P/NC option, a web portal will be made available to students no later than Monday, April 27. There, you will be able to select which courses you want to opt into the framework. You will be able to make your selections between April 27 and 11 p.m. on May 2. The portal will then close for the week of final exams, and will re-open between May 11 and 4:30 p.m. on May 13. It is only on your final official grade report and transcript that you will see the P/NC designation reflected. For additional guidance, please visit
