FAQ: Pass/Fail Spring 2020

  • Does the Pass/Fail option apply to summer/fall?

    No. The Pass/Fail option was only available for Spring 2020. The deadline to elect this option was May 8, 2020. 

  • How does the Pass/Fail option impact my Financial Aid?

    If a student takes Pass/Fail option, there are no implications for financial aid in the current term (Spring 2020).

    The deadline to withdraw from a course was May 8, 2020.

  • How does Pass/Fail impact my Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?

    Please review the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy on our website.

  • How will Pass/Fail impact my eligibility for Merit, Trustees or Honors Scholarship?

    If a student elects to take all Spring 2020 courses as Pass/Fail, the cumulative GPA entering Spring 2020 will be used to determine eligibility.

    If a student has partial Pass/Fail and partial academic grades for Spring 2020, the established GPA for the semester will be used to determine eligibility.

  • How does Pass/Fail impact my continued eligibility for WCSU Foundation Scholarships?

    Provided you maintain the overall GPA required to renew your recurring WCSU Foundation scholarship and you advance your overall credit total, you will be able to receive your renewable WCSU Foundation scholarship. (see wcsu.edu/scholarships)

  • How will Pass/Fail impact selection eligibility for WCSU Foundation Scholarships?
    Many of the WCSU Foundation scholarships have a GPA and/or total number of earned credits requirement.  The GPA and total number of earned credits calculated at the end of the Spring 2020 semester is what will be used to select recipients for 2020-2021 academic year WCSU Foundation scholarships. (see wcsu.edu/scholarships)
  • What will happen to my financial aid if I withdraw from a course?

    As of April 6, we have surpassed 60% of the semester; therefore, a course withdrawal would have no impact to your current financial aid award. 

    The deadline for withdrawing from a course was May 8, 2020.

  • What will happen to my financial aid if I withdraw from the university?
    As of April 6th we have surpassed the 60% mark of the semester. Regardless of the reason for withdrawal, no adjustments are required for financial aid. If a withdrawal is back dated to an earlier date and the withdrawal is COVID-19 related (with documentation), no adjustments are being made to financial aid. If a withdrawal is back dated to an earlier date and it is not COVID-19 related, all R2T4 regulations apply.
