Frequenty Asked Questions: 


Will a class transfer and apply to general education and appropriate degree requirements if grade of P+ is awarded in spring 2020? (indicates student earned a C or better in course.)

Yes. If a student earns a P+ grade during the Spring 2020 semester and the course is otherwise transferable, transfer credit will be awarded.

How will a grade of P+ on a spring course impact the student entering a competitive major?

Students will still be able to receive major credit for a P+ grade earned in the Spring 2020 semester and may use it to fulfill prerequisite requirements. Students are always encouraged to meet with their academic advisor and faculty mentor to discuss their academic progress and preparedness.

How will a grade of P+ on a spring course impact the student meeting a major requirement of a grade of B or higher?

Students will still be able to receive major credit for a P+ grade earned in the Spring 2020 semester and may use it to fulfill prerequisite requirements, even if a minimum grade is normally required. 

How will a grade of P+ on a spring course impact the GAA if it requires a letter grade higher than a  C on any courses?

Students receiving a grade of P+ for spring 2020 term courses will be eligible to receive transfer credit in courses that are transferable into Marymount.

How will a grade of P+ on a spring course be treated if the course is a pre-req for a major-specific course that normally requires a minimum grade to enroll in the major course?

Students will still be able to receive major credit for a P+ grade earned in the Spring 2020 semester and may use it to fulfill prerequisite requirements, even a minimum grade is normally required.

How will a grade of P+ (grade of C or better) or P- (grade of D) impact eligibility for the Transfer Grant?

If P- is equivalent to a D on your grading scale, then that it not transferable. A letter grade of C is required, so students who receive a grade of P+ for the spring 2020 term will be eligible to receive transfer credit in courses that are transferable into Marymount.
