  • Winter/Spring 2021 P/NP Policy for Majors in Mathematics

    Undergraduate - February 11, 2021

     
    The faculty of the Department of Mathematics will allow for Winter 2021 and Spring 2021 students in any Math Department major (MA27, MA29, MA30, MA31, MA32, MA33, MA34, MA35) to take a maximum of four (4) major requirement courses on a P/NP basis in each quarter. This includes both lower-division and upper-division courses as well as courses taken from other departments that are used to satisfy Math major requirements. 
     
    However, no more than seven (7) total upper-division courses taken in Spring 2020, Fall 2020, Winter 2021 and Spring 2021 with a P grade will be allowed to satisfy major requirements.
     
    Here is a link to the Enrollment & Registration Calendar for this academic year. The WI21 deadline for all students to change grading options is 3/12/21 (Week 10). The SP21 deadline for all students to change grading options is 6/4/21 (Week 10).

    Please keep in mind the following:
    • Winter 2021 & Spring 2021 P/NP units will not count towards the 25% maximum allowed by the University
    • Course work must be equivalent to C- or better to receive a P grade.
    • Financial Aid packages will be affected by NP grades.
    • Students looking to go into math graduate programs would most likely want to take key coursework (especially advanced theory classes like Algebra or Analysis) for letter grades as these are courses graduate admissions committees will focus on. This is also true for students applying to competitive research programs, fellowships and internships.
     
    The P grade is an acceptable prerequisite for any Math Department course. An EASy request may be required if WebReg does not automatically recognize the P grade prerequisite when you attempt to enroll. Students who plan to use the P grade as a prerequisite for another department's course should consult with that department before electing the grade option change.

  • Fall 2020 P/NP Policy for Majors in Mathematics

    Undergraduate - December 16, 2020

     
    The faculty of the Department of Mathematics will allow for Fall 2020 students in any Math Department major (MA27, MA29, MA30, MA31, MA32, MA33, MA34, MA35) to take a maximum of four (4) on a P/NP basis. This includes both lower-division and upper-division courses as well as courses taken from other departments that are used to satisfy Math major requirements. 
     
    However, no more than seven (7) total upper-division courses taken in Spring 2020 and Fall 2020 with a P grade will be allowed to satisfy major requirements.

    Please keep in mind the following:
    • Fall 2020 P/NP units will count toward the 25% maximum allowed by the University.
    • Course work must be equivalent to C- or better to receive a P grade.
    • A change from a D grade to a NP will result in a loss of units.
    • Financial Aid packages will be affected by NP grades.
    • A change to P/NP for a Fall 2020 course will be allowed for a repeat of a class in which a D or F grade was earned in an earlier term.
    • Students looking to go into math graduate programs would most likely want to take key coursework (especially advanced theory classes like Algebra or Analysis) for letter grades as these are courses graduate admissions committees will focus on. This is also true for students applying to competitive research programs, fellowships and internships.
     
    The P grade is an acceptable prerequisite for any Math Department course. An EASy request may be required if WebReg does not automatically recognize the P grade prerequisite when you attempt to enroll. Students who plan to use the P grade as a prerequisite for another department's course should consult with that department before electing the grade option change.
