 CORRECTIONS

61 Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID) 69. SOC 2 = SOCI 115
83 Pass/No Pass Option Pass/No Pass Option

Each Peralta College shall determine which courses can be offered on a Pass/No Pass basis and shall specify in the college catalog which courses have this option. (In absence of such a determination, a course will be presumed to be offered on a letter-grade basis.)

 

The student’s decision to take a course for Pass/No Pass must be made prior to the fourth week of instruction (30% of instruction for summer session and short-term classes). The student must go into the Passport Student Center to choose P/NP. Upon successful completion of a pass/no-pass graded course, the student earns the specified number of units and the record will show “P” (which indicates a “C” grade or better). If the student’s work is unsatisfactory, the record will show “NP” (which indicates a “D” grade or below).

 

All units earned on a Pass/No Pass basis in California institutions of higher education or equivalent out-of-state institutions shall be counted in satisfaction of community college curriculum requirements, but such courses shall not be included in determining a student’s grade point average.

 

Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution are cautioned that in most cases courses in which a grade of “P” was earned will not be counted toward their major. Furthermore, limitations are imposed on the number of units of “P” that will be counted toward a Bachelor’s degree. The student should consult the catalog of the transfer institution for more specific information on regarding the use of courses in which a “P” grade was received
