Dear CU Denver Students:
I am writing to you today with the news that CU Denver will be extending the option for modified grading into the summer 2020 semester. As most of you know, we announced that students will have the option to choose between their assigned letter grade or a P+/P/NP that will not impact their GPA at the end of the spring 2020 semester. Now you will have the opportunity to choose this option for your summer 2020 courses as well.
The CU Denver Modified Grading website has lots of information about the policy, including a brief video that explains how it works, step-by-step instructions for students, and FAQs. The Academic Policy Updates webpage provides updates on policies like Academic Standing/Progress and Grade Forgiveness. Please visit these websites for more information.
As you will see on the Modified Grading website, undergraduate student requests for modified grading will be handled by your assigned academic advisor. Graduate students should request grade modification through their advisor or program director. You can learn how to find your assigned academic advisor and make an appointment with your advisor by visiting the Modified Grading website.
We acknowledge that this is an incredibly stressful and trying time for everyone: those working to balance work, school and family, those facing health challenges and worried about the health of loved ones, those with financial hardship, and those for whom the uncertainty of our current reality is overwhelming. We are working in numerous ways to alleviate some of these burdens and invite you to make use of student resources and the campus COVID-19 website for more information.
Meanwhile, please continue to take good care of yourself.
Vice Provost/Senior Vice Chancellor for Student Success
