To help decrease stress and facilitate continued academic success, the University has adopted a significant level of flexibility in course grading for the spring 2020 semester. When grades have been posted, all Pitt students enrolled in courses for a letter grade during the 2204 (spring) term may choose to convert the grading of any of their courses from a letter grade basis to a satisfactory (S)/no credit (NC) basis. All courses that are awarded S grades will count toward graduation/degree requirements and satisfy future course prerequisites. Please find more information regarding undergraduate, and graduate grading policies below:
We’d like to congratulate Charline Rowland (teaching consultant), Mark Vehec (web developer), Robin Albright (senior instructional designer), and Tahirah Walker (manager, Teaching Support) for earning the Teaching Center’s 2019 Advancing Educational Excellence award! The annual honor is a peer-driven award that recognizes Teaching Center staff members who exemplify the values of the center, demonstrate a positive attitude and commitment to responsibilities, and make above-and-beyond contributions to the University.
