Message from Vice Provost for Academic Excellence on Alternate Grading Option
Thank you for staying with us this semester. We acknowledge the perseverance needed to continue learning remotely and we hear the struggles of maintaining space and technology to complete your work. As we enter PCOR3 and Guam continues to lead the nation in vaccination efforts, we are all hopeful for more in-person learning experiences. For now, though, we continue to offer the alternate grading option for students who may need it, and whose academic and career goals make it a viable choice
For each undergraduate course completed, students will have the option of replacing the letter grade earned with an alternative grade that will not affect GPA calculations.
The alternate grades available to undergraduates are as follows:
Deadlines correspond to the posted deadlines for withdrawal. If the University modifies withdrawal deadlines due to changing circumstances, the deadlines for the alternate grading option will also be adjusted.
If the request is submitted during the voluntary withdrawal period, by March 17, 2021, the request will also be treated as voluntary, and not require additional signatures.
If the request is submitted during the petition to withdraw period, after March 17, 2021, the consent of the instructor and your advisor are also required. Requests may not be submitted after the last day of classes.
The updated form for Fañomnåkan 2021 is available online: click Alternative Grading Option to download the form. You must complete one form for each course. If you have trouble finding an advisor, please contact the Triton Advising Center.
