Pass/Fail Option


North Central Texas College permits enrollment in selected courses on a pass/fail option basis. In courses where this option is available to the student, the instructor can provide the necessary forms for selecting the pass/fail option. The forms must be completed by the student and instructor and returned to the Registrar's Office by the second Tuesday of the second week of the current semester. The pass/fail option will not be extended beyond this date.

Once the pass/fail option is processed, he or she may not return to a standard A, B, C, D, F evaluative system. It is not recommended to select the pass/fail option if the course in which the option is applied should be included as a part of the college major and expected to transfer that course to a senior college or university.

Performance requirements on the part of the student are the same regardless of the pass/fail option or the traditional A, B, C, D, F evaluative system. Courses taken on a pass/fail basis do not earn grade points, however, failing grades will be counted in the student's grade point average.
