Deadline to submit Summer 2020 P/NC form: Friday, August 21, 2020 by 11:59pm

Dear RU-N Students and Visiting Students:

Rutgers University-Newark is allowing you to choose a Pass/No-credit grade on your transcript instead of a letter grade (A-F) for any RU-N course that you are taking this summer. (This policy does not apply to Law School students for a variety of reasons—please consult with the Law School for more details.) In order to help you maintain academic progress without disruption in financial aid, it is essential that you consult with your academic advisor and the Office of Financial Aid-Newark as you consider this option. Also, a Pass/No-Credit grade may impact how your transcript is viewed by employers and other universities (e.g., if you apply for graduate school), although such impact is likely to be minimized by the fact that several other universities are also currently allowing this conversion. Furthermore, should you choose a Pass/No-Credit option, a note will appear on your transcript to indicate the circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak. You can make an appointment with your academic advisor through the RUN4Success platform. Visiting students should contact their home campus if they have any questions about academic progress or financial aid.

Keep in mind that you do not need to discuss this issue of converting grades with your instructor. The instructor will assign A-F grades as usual. If you do make the request for conversion, the Registrar’s office will implement it. If it is a course grade of C or better, you will receive a Pass entry. If not, then you will receive a No-Credit entry. To access the form, log into myRutgers and click on the “dashboard” tab.  On the “dashboard” tab, click on the link to access the P/NC form. The P/NC form will be available for students enrolled in Summer Session I & III beginning on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 and available to students enrolled in Summer Session II beginning on Friday, July 17, 2020. Students enrolled in all summer session courses will need to make the decision by Friday, August 21, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.  

If you are seeking to withdraw from a course in Summer Session, follow the published deadlines on the Summer Session Newark website.  Students enrolled in the RBS 3rd term should follow the published deadlines withdraw dates for RBS Master’s programs for summer 2020.

Thanks again to you, our dear students, and our wonderful faculty and staff, as we together continue to pursue our academic mission during these difficult times.
