Grading Policy Amendment for Spring 2020 Semester

For Spring 2020 courses only, the following policy applies:

  • Student performance in each course will be recorded as pass or fail.
  • Pass is defined as "competency in meeting the educational objectives of the course."
  • Faculty are strongly encouraged to set specific and meaningful standards for what is required to pass their course and to communicate those standards to their students as soon as possible. Faculty are also encouraged to design an exercise for students who may fail a final exam to illustrate competency and earn credit to pass the course.
  • Faculty will keep records of letter grades to provide students with feedback about their performance in the course and counsel them with respect to areas that might need attention in preparation for the bar exam and practice.
