This option is designed to encourage students to explore areas of study outside their majors. Students may choose to take one P/NC course each academic year at Whitworth. Core/Worldview Studies courses, courses in the student’s major or area of concentration, and education courses are excluded from this option. Students may elect to take PE activity courses Pass/No Credit. A grade of Pass will be assigned in a P/NC course on the basis of a grade of “C” or higher. A grade of No Credit will be assigned in a P/NC course on the basis of a grade of “C-” or lower. Once a P/NC has been declared, it is irreversible. Check the academic calendar for the deadline to declare P/NC. NOTE: If students never attend or stop attending a class in which they have declared a P/NC, they will receive a "WW" grade and not the No Credit grade; the "WW" grade equates to unofficial withdrawal from the class.
In circumstances where a student is unable to complete the coursework required prior to the end of the trimester, the student may, with the instructor’s approval, file a petition to receive a grade of Incomplete. Incomplete grades will be indicated by a mark of “I” on the student’s grade report and transcript until the student either successfully completes the course requirements (at which time the “I” will be changed to a letter grade) or fails to complete the course requirements (at which time the “I” will be changed to an “F”).
