A student who wishes to take, on a pass fail basis, a course which has been designated as a "pass fail election" must make all necessary arrangements with the instructor prior to the end of the drop/add periodAfter the drop/add period, the election is irrevocable.  A student may make only one pass fail election per semester.  Refer to student handbook for further information. http://www.usciences.edu/studenthandbook
