GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) -East Carolina University is implementing a pass/fail system for students for the fall semester.

In a letter to students, the university says that the move is in response to rapidly changing circumstances concerning the coronavirus and the moving of undergraduate courses to remote.

The letter says:

• Beginning today, Sept. 2, ECU will implement the pass/fail option to undergraduate students. Courses graded as pass/fail under this exception will count towards applicable curricular, major, continuation and graduation requirements.

• A grade of pass/fail will not count toward a student’s GPA but will count toward earned semester hours.

• All academic transcripts will have a note added to Fall 2020 indicating the major disruption the coronavirus pandemic has caused to the academic experience.

• As of today, the pass/fail option is only for undergraduate students.

• Students are strongly advised to speak with an advisor before making the decision to declare a class pass/fail.

ECU says that more details on the implementation of the Emergency Grading Accommodation will be available as soon as it’s in place.
