Dear UAH students,

We hope that you are having a great final exam week. The end of the semester is near, so keep charging ahead. The purpose of this message is to provide information on how to review your final grades and switch to Pass/Fail grading should you decide to do so.

Once final exams are finished, faculty will post grades as usual in Banner.  They are working hard to get all grades entered so that you will have ample time to review your grades and consider your options.  Beginning Friday, May 1, you will be able to login to your account to review your final grades and indicate your desired grading method for each course.  You have until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 8 to make your selections.  Step-by-step instructions can be found in the attached document. 

Thank you and good luck.

Pass/Withdraw Grading Option Instructions

Students wishing to take advantage of the Pass/Withdraw grading option for Spring 2020 will use their Self-Service Banner account. The steps in the process are defined below.

Please keep the following facts in mind as you make your selections:

  • You have from 12:01 a.m. on Friday, May 1, until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 8, to make changes. This deadline will not be extended.
  • After May 8, all grade choices are final and cannot be changed.
  • For each course you must select Pass, Withdraw, or Keep Grade.
  • If no selection is made, “Keep Grade” is the default selection.
  • Consistent with the Academic Misconduct policy, students found responsible for academic misconduct cannot Withdraw from a course or change their grade to Pass in order to avoid consequences of an academic sanction.
  • Grades are being added as quickly as faculty enter them. If you do not see a grade for a given course, please remember to check again later.
  • If you need assistance in determining how the Pass/Withdraw option will affect your scholarship, progress towards degree completion, GPA calculation, graduation with honors, admission to graduate school, or academic status please check with your academic advisor. Find your advisor here
