Dear Great Falls College MSU Students, Faculty, and Staff:

Thank you all for your hard work and patience as we have chartered new territory due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In an effort to address these extraordinary circumstances of all coursework moving to online delivery mode, Great Falls College MSU will implement the Pass/No Pass grading option for all courses as follows:

  • Faculty will continue to grade students for spring 2020 courses, based upon their current syllabi, using their syllabi’s grading structure and criteria.
  • Students will be given the option of receiving a P/NP grade after grades are posted and in consultation with their advisor.
  • A P grade will be based on a grade of C or higher (NOT C- or higher).
  • A NP grade will be based on a grade of C- or lower.
  • Students may choose to receive a P/NP grade in place of a letter grade for any number of their courses.
  • Under the P/NP option, neither pass nor no pass grades will be factored into students’ Grade Point Average (GPA). Pass grades will count towards earned semester hours.
  • Students will be required to meet with an Advisor in the Advising & Career Center to discuss with each individual student who elects this grade mode to look for unintended consequences (honors, athletic eligibility, transfer, competitive entry programs, repeat courses, term GPA, cumulative GPA, etc.).
  • Students will have 5 business days to make the request in consultation with an Advisor to have the grade changed to a P or NP. Spring 2020 grades are official available on May 18th, so requests have to be into the Registrar’s Office by May 22nd at 5 p.m.

The Registrar’s Office will change the grade to a P/NP and make a notation of such to the students’ transcripts,

These temporary accommodations will be reevaluated for summer semester 2020.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time.

Sincerely,

Dr. Susan J. Wolff, CEO/Dean
