Pass/Fail Credit

Standard requirements and COVID-19 modifications for Spring 2020

  • Standard Policy for Prerequisite Requirements - For the College of Nursing, courses taken on a Pass/Fail (P/F) or Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) basis may not be used to fulfill prerequisite requirements.
    • COVID-19 Exception for Prerequisite Requirements - The CU College of Nursing's strong recommendation is that students choose to have standard grades listed on their transcript and not the Pass/Fail grade option. However, for courses completed in Spring 2020 only, Passing (P) or Satisfactory (S) grades may be accepted to fulfill prerequisite courses, provided the P or S indicates that the student has earned a C grade or higher. For GPA calculation purposes, an approved P or S course grade will be converted to the lowest score associated with the P or S by the sending institution (e.g. a C grade will be calculated as a 2.0). For spring 2020 grades only, the student, via the sending institution, will have the option of submitting the underlying/actual grade earned, e.g. A, B, etc., which will be used in the GPA calculation for review purposes. There will not be a cap to the total number of prerequisite credits that may be taken on a P/F or S/U basis for spring 2020 coursework, provided that the aforementioned criteria are satisfied.
  • Standard Policy for Academic Electives - The College of Nursing will accept up to 6 credits of P/F or S/U courses in transfer to fulfill Academic Electives, provided the P or S indicates that the student has earned a C grade or higher. Academic Elective credits are needed for applicants to reach the minimum 60 semester credits required to transfer into the RN-BS and Dual Enrollment ADN programs.
    • COVID-19 Exception for Academic Electives - The CU College of Nursing's strong recommendation is that students choose to have standard grades listed on their transcript and not the Pass/Fail grade option. However, for courses completed in Spring 2020 only, Passing (P) or Satisfactory (S) grades may be accepted to fulfill up to 12 Academic Elective credits, provided the P or S indicates that the student has earned a C grade or higher.

Correspondence and Extension

A maximum of 30 semester hours of correspondence and extension credit may count toward the degree. Correspondence and extension credit must meet the guidelines for transfer of college level credit and are subject to review. Please call 303-724-1812 to speak with an admission specialist for more details.

Foreign Transcripts and Study Abroad Credits

Transcripts for all foreign (non-study abroad) coursework must be submitted directly to the University of Colorado College of Nursing for evaluation through the Office of International Affairs.

Transcripts for study abroad coursework from a non-U.S. institution may be required depending on how foreign coursework is posted on the domestic (receiving institution) transcript. If all course information (course title, credits hours and grades) is posted to the domestic transcript, applicants do not need to submit a separate transcript from the study abroad institution. If any course information is incomplete, or the grades are posed as Pass/Fail, a transcript for the study abroad coursework will need to be submitted directly to the University of Colorado College of Nursing Office of Admissions & Student Affairs.

Additional Types of Credit

Some courses are accepted from advanced placement, CLEP and international baccalaureate programs. Email your admissions specialist with specific questions regarding these types of credits.
