The purpose of the Pass/NG option is to provide students opportunities for learning which minimize the pressure of grades and impact on a student’s overall Grade Point Average (GPA) The Pass/NG option is an option for elective courses, but is not eligible for courses that are accelerated/AP, dual credit or required for graduation.
When choosing an eligible course for the Pass/No Grade Option, the following will appear on the transcript:
- A passing grade (D or above) will be reflected in your transcript as a “P” for Pass, will receive credit and will not count towards your GPA.
- A failing grade will be reflected as an “NG” for No Grade, will not receive credit and not count towards your GPA.
If you wish to take a course on a Pass/NG basis for the first semester of the 2022-23 school year you must complete and submit the signed Pass/NG form to your counselor by 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec 2, 2022. Please read the form carefully.
