P/NP Grading Policy Changes for Spring/Summer 2021

The Academic Senate has announced that the P/NP grading exceptions implemented in the Winter 2021 quarter will now be extended to the Spring and Summer 2021 quarters as well. All history department major/minor courses may be taken for a P/NP grade in Spring and Summer 2021. You can find the Academic Senate memo with more information on this policy change HERE, and I highly recommend students read it thoroughly before making any decisions on changing their grading options. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
*For those of you in our interdisciplinary minors (Poverty, Inequality, and Social Justice and Labor Studies) that take courses from outside the history department, please note that it is at the discretion of the department that owns the course to decide whether they will offer it with P/NP grading or not. If they do, you can take it with a P/NP grade and receive minor credit for the course.
