Get credit without affecting your GPA
Do you want to take an interesting, unfamiliar, or challenging course, but are worried about how it might affect your GPA? Many degree programs will let you take a class as pass/fail. If you receive a grade of D or above, you’ll get credit hours for the course and a grade of P on your academic record, but your GPA won’t reflect the grade. But keep in mind that if you receive an F, that F will appear on your transcript and be calculated into your GPA.
