Transferring Pass/Fail grades from Spring 2020

Will my class transfer and apply to general education and appropriate degree requirements if a grade of P/P+/P- is earned in spring 2020?

Classes earned with a P and P+ grades will receive the equivalent transfer credits, therefore, they will apply to equivalent general education and departmental requirements.

P- grades will not receive transfer credit, thus will not apply to departmental requirements and will only apply to general education if a student completed an associate degree that fulfills the requirements of eligibility for the lower-division general education waiver.

How will a grade of P/P+/P- be calculated towards my GPA for admissions?

Grades of P/P+/P- are not calculated in a GPA.

How will a grade of P/P+/P- on a spring course impact me if I am applying to a competitive major? Or my major requires a grade of B or higher in the course?

If you have a choice of a letter grade (A or B) or P/P+, consult with your advisor. In general, if you have a grade (A or B) it will probably look better on your transcript to have the letter grade, because a P could mean anything from D- on up depending on the institution, a P+ can mean anything from a C on up, and a P- can mean anything from a D- to a C-.

If you are considering a licensure program, graduate school, or a professional program, please discuss with an academic advisor or a program director.

If you do not have a choice of a letter grade or P grade, please consult with your advisor upon transfer to discuss how it will affect your individual situation.

How will a grade of P/P+/P- transfer to ODU?

P and P+ grades will receive the equivalent transfer course credit. P- will not receive transfer credit.

If I earn a grade of P/P+/P- on a spring course that is a pre-requisite course for a course in my major, will I still be able to enroll in that course?

P and P+ grades will receive the equivalent transfer course credit, therefore they fulfill the pre-requisites and you are eligible to enroll in the next class.

How will a grade of P+/P- impact eligibility for the VCCS Transfer Grant?

It does not affect because P grades do not affect GPA; GPA counted for transfer grant will be the GPA recorded before Spring 2020 for VCCS students. I or F grades may have an impact on eligibility; please check with a Financial Aid counselor.
