Spring Registration/Withdrawal and Change of Grading Deadline

     UST advisors will be holding drop-ins to accommodate the current registration period and withdrawal/change of grading deadline of November 14. Please remember, drop-ins are quick meetings (15-minutes max) when UST advisors will be available to answer your questions. You may be able to meet with your assigned UST advisor or you may meet with another UST advisor if your assigned advisor is unavailable (either is fine!). We will address your concerns as quickly as possible, but please be patient as there could be a wait!

Here are the different options for changing your grading status:

  • WITHDRAWAL
    • Similar to dropping a class, but it stays on your transcript with a grade of W.
    • Good option if you are struggling in a class you don’t necessarily need (e.g. a breadth requirement that can be satisfied with a different course).
  • PASS/FAIL
    • If you earn a passing grade, you will have a P that does not affect your GPA, and the credits count as a free elective but do not satisfy any requirements.
    • If you earn a failing grade, you will have an F that does affect your GPA.
    • Good option if you feel you can pass the class but don’t want a low grade to affect your GPA, and you don’t necessarily need the class (i.e. you won’t need to repeat it with standard grading).
    • You can only change one class per semester to pass/fail.
  • AUDIT
    • You attend the class but don’t have to do the assignments, don’t earn credits, and earn a grade of L (listener) which does not affect your GPA.
    • Good option if you are struggling in a class you will need to repeat or it is currently serving as a co-requisite to another course.

There are more considerations to take into account when deciding what to do about a class, like if it will drop you below full-time status or affect your financial aid, scholarships, student visa, etc. Make sure to contact the appropriate office/department to find out how it will affect you before making any changes. When in doubt, contact your academic advisor.
