This option is designed to encourage students to explore areas of study outside their majors. Students may choose to take one P/NC course each academic year at Whitworth. Core/Worldview Studies courses, courses in the student’s major or area of concentration, and education courses are excluded from this option. Students may elect to take PE activity courses Pass/No Credit. A grade of Pass will be assigned in a P/NC course on the basis of a grade of “C” or higher. A grade of No Credit will be assigned in a P/NC course on the basis of a grade of “C-” or lower. Once a P/NC has been declared, it is irreversible. Check the academic calendar for the deadline to declare P/NC. NOTE: If students never attend or stop attending a class in which they have declared a P/NC, they will receive a "WW" grade and not the No Credit grade; the "WW" grade equates to unofficial withdrawal from the class.
