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:
