Reminder- Second Chance to Select Grading Option May 8th - May 29th 

May 7, 2020


Dear Students,


As we come to the end of final exam week in spring 2020, we will make the second opportunity to select Pass/No Credit or change your previous grading selection available.


Beginning at 8:00 AM on May 8th until 11:00 PM on May 29th, you will be able to log in to your myLSUE account (no longer any need to email the Registrar) and select, on a course-by-course basis, whether you wish to receive the letter grade or Pass/No Credit. If you do not choose an option, you will receive the letter grade you have earned. If you wish to change the selection you made during the original selection period, you may do so during this time. For those courses where the P/NC option was selected, a final grade of A, B or a C will receive a “P” on the official transcript and a final grade of D or F will receive a “NC”. Grades will not be converted to P/NC until semester grade processing concludes. Please keep the following in mind: 

  • A “P” indicates that the student passed the course and will receive the established number of credit hours, while “NC” indicates the student was enrolled and completed the course, but will not receive credit for it.
  • A “P” grade will meet prerequisites and major requirements for your program of study.
  • For Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), you must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA and complete 70% of attempted hours.  NC grades will count against your successfully completed courses.
  • Neither “P” nor “NC” grades will be used in calculating your cumulative or semester grade point averages. However, any letter grade selected will be used in the calculation of your GPA. You can calculate the effect on your GPA and see “what if”, by using the GPA Calculator. If P/NC is selected for all courses attempted and you are currently on probation or continued probation, the status will roll into the next semester.
  • For students applying to the LSUE Nursing and Allied Health programs, a P/NC will not be accepted for application to those programs.
  • Athletes - please consult with your coach as to what option to take concerning eligibility and progress towards your degree.
  • Acceptance of a P/NC for professional programs at other universities will be up to each individual graduate, medical, or law school.  You should contact each of the institutions you are considering and inquire as to how they will view “P” or “NC” grades in their admissions decision.

It is very important that you consider the consequences of this choice.
