Commencement Announcement:

Letter Grade or Pass/No Pass

The last day to change your grading option is on Friday, March 24th. You may change your grading option from letter grade to P/NP AND also from P/NP to letter grade using CalCentral.

Please carefully consider all of your options or consult with our office or the College of Letters and Science (206 Evans) if you have any questions before making this change. L&S WILL NOT allow you to switch back after this deadline. Keep this following information in mind when doing so:

  • ALL courses that will fulfill Psychology major requirements, both lower and upper division, *MUST* be taken for a letter grade.
  • A passing grade in ANY Psychology course used to fulfill major requirements is D-, as long as the following conditions are met:

    • your overall Psych major GPA is 2.0 or above;
    • your Psych upper-division GPA is 2.0 or above.
  • Any other Psych courses that you change to P/NP in which you receive a P may not be repeated for a letter grade and used towards the major in the future. You must opt for a different course.
  • If you have already fulfilled all major requirements and are taking Psych courses beyond the required upper-division courses, you are welcome to take those excess courses as P/NP as long as all major requirements have already been fulfilled.
  • Additional information regarding P/NP courses can be found here: https://ls.berkeley.edu/advising/academic-progress/grades/passednot-pass...

Again, questions regarding courses outside of the Psychology major may be directed to L&S.
