The Juniata College faculty passed a policy on 05/01/19 regarding Pass / No-Pass (P/NP). In particular, the policy states:


“In consultation with their advisors, students may elect to take up to 16 credits on a P/NP basis with a limit of four credits per term. Up to one course, not exceeding 4 credits, in the student’s POE and one course, not exceeding 4 credits, in general education may be taken as Pass/No Pass during the student’s academic career at Juniata. However, First Year Experience courses as described in the Faculty Handbook cannot be taken Pass/No Pass.”

  1. Department Chairs can choose courses that CANNOT be taken P/NP
  2. Faculty will assign grades as usual w/out knowing if a student has chosen P/NP.
  3. Students need declare their interest in P/NP early in the semester - before Drop/Add ends.
  4. Any time before graduation, students can choose for their letter grade in a course to replace the P/NP (example: to accommodate a change in POE). Students do not need a SAD appeal.
  5. Students cannot retroactively shift from a letter grade to P/NP.
  6. P/NP CANNOT be added after drop/add, nor can it be petitioned to the SAD Committee.

To Recap:

  • After a P/NP grade is elected by a student, any time before graduation they are permitted to convert it back to a letter grade
  • A student is NOT able to convert a letter grade to P/NP
