Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

Students taking credit classes now choose between two grading options (providing the department has permitted both options for a course):

  1. Letter Grades (A-F)
  2. Pass/No Pass (P/NP)

When registering, PCC students taking credit classes can choose between receiving traditional letter grades (A-F) and Pass/No Pass (P/NP). If you do not select a grading option, you will automatically have the default grading option for that course. The default option is generally a letter grade, but could be pass/no pass.

How to choose your grading option:

  • Choose when you register for classes
  • You can change your grading option in MyPCC College Business Tab > Term-to-Term Checklist > Register for Classes link > Grade Change Options link. Select the term, find your class and click the "list arrow" to select the grade option you want. Click Submit Changes.
  • Refer the 2014-15 PCC Dual Credit Academic Calendar for the deadline to have your grade change completed.

Issues to consider when choosing a grading option:

  • There is a limit to the number of Pass credits that can apply towards a degree or certificate. Check with an academic advisor regarding the limit set for your degree or certificate at 971-722-4531. Keep in mind the limits differ from program to program and from college to college.
  • There are also a limited number of Pass credits that will transfer to other college/universities. For more information, check with an academic advisor at the institution you plan to attend.
