Student Grades

Changing to Pass/Fail

Per Provost Pritchett's March 20, 2020 announcement, many students may now choose to designate any enrolled Spring 2020 course Pass/Fail. The deadline to make this election is April 13, 2020 at 11:59pm.

Undergraduate students can follow these directions to change a course status in Penn InTouch. Undergraduate students on financial hold should use the Petition for Change of Grading Option form to have their grade type changed to Pass/Fail. The Provost's announcement to undergraduate students can be found here.

Research masters, PhD, and some select graduate professional students should use the Petition for Change of Grading Option form to request a change to their grade mode for some courses taken during the spring 2020 term. We strongly encourage you to speak with your faculty advisor(s) before making changes to your grade mode.

Students can view their available grades at any time on Penn InTouch by clicking on “Academic Records” and “View Grades” 

Grades are posted to the Student Record System as they are received and are available online within 24 hours from posting. Grades are due from faculty based on the following schedule: 

Fall Term Due the first working day in January after the winter break
Spring Term Due by 12 noon three days after the last day of final exams
Summer Sessions Due by 12 noon three days after the last day of classes.

Grade Changes

Grade changes are initiated by faculty and must be approved by the student’s school. Changes are posted to SRS by the Registrar’s Office within 24 hours after receipt of the approved grade change notice from the school. 

Students should contact their school offices regarding the status of grade changes. 

Grading Policy 

Grading rules and policy are determined by the respective schools. The University Catalog lists grading policies for undergraduate students.  

Grades and Transcripts 

Grades will appear on your transcript within 24 hours after they are posted to SRS. Please note if you are on a “hold” you may not have access to your transcript or be able to view your grades on Penn InTouch.
