IMPORTANT INFORMATION ~ 19/20 Spring

Submitted by Megan L. Howes on Thursday, 4/9/2020, at 11:44 AM

By vote of the faculty, all classes during the spring 2020 semester will be treated as though the flexible grading option (FGO) had been elected. The FGO enables students to decide whether or not to keep a grade they earned in a course after the grade is posted, or in the case of any passing grade, to elect to receive a (“P”).  Students who are not in their final semester at Amherst now have until June 15, 2020, to decide whether or not to keep the grade they earned in each course they are taking this semester, or in the case of any passing grade, to elect to receive a pass (“P”) in each course.  Second-semester seniors now have until May 22, 2020, at 5 p.m., to decide whether or not to keep the grade they earned in each course they are taking this semester, or in the case of any passing grade, to elect to receive a pass (“P”) in each course.  In cases in which students are granted extensions this semester, they will have five days after the grade is posted to decide whether to keep the grade that they earned in the course, or in the case of any passing grade, to elect to receive a pass (“P”) in each course. (There are no extensions for graduating seniors.)

Given the grave emergency posed by COVID-19 and the virus’s impact on all of us, for courses taken in spring 2020, the Architectural Studies Program has decided to accept courses toward the major for which students have earned a grade of Pass.
