Extended Deadlines for Pass/No Pass, Excused Withdrawals

The deadlines for requesting Pass/No Pass or an Excused Withdrawal have been extended, in consideration of the disruptions caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

  • Pass/No Pass: You can request Pass/No Pass for classes taken in the 2021 summer session or retroactively for classes taken in winter or spring 2021 or winter, spring, summer or fall of 2020. The deadline for these requests is Dec. 31, 2021.
  • Excused Withdrawals: You can request an Excused Withdrawal for classes taken in the 2021 summer session up to the last day of the class. (The last day of class will vary for different summer courses.) Requests for excused withdrawals for previous quarters will not be considered without documentation of extenuating circumstances.

Before choosing Pass/No Pass, you should know that some transfer universities may not accept Pass grades for certain requirements. To learn more about these important considerations and how to submit a request, visit our Special Rules for Pass/No Pass and Excused Withdrawals webpage.
