Spring Quarter 2020 P/NP Policy for Majors in Mathematics

The faculty of the Department of Mathematics have decided to allow students in any Math Department major (MA27, MA29, MA30, MA31, MA32, MA33, MA34, MA35) to take a maximum of four Spring 2020 major courses on a P/NP basis.

Students who decide to take major-required course(s) on a P/NP basis should send the department a message on the Virtual Advising Center (VAC) so their degree audit can be updated to accept the grading choice.

Students with questions about the pros and cons of taking courses P/NP should consult with mathematics advising staff via the VAC.

The P grade is an acceptable prerequisite for any Math Department course. An EASy request may be required if WebReg does not automatically recognize the P grade prerequisite when you attempt to enroll. Students who plan to use the P grade as a prerequisite for another department's course should consult with that department before electing the grade option change.
