Pass/Fail for Spring Semester

Title : Pass/Fail for Spring Semester
Posting Date / Time : Apr 1, 2020, 13:00 PM

Dear Students,

Immediately following spring break, the campus community implemented a significant challenge: the launch of online instruction for all of our face-to-face undergraduate and graduate classes in an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been inspired by the enthusiasm and dedication that so many faculty have brought to this endeavor, and we are grateful for the continued commitment to fulfilling Edgewood College’s mission of teaching and learning during these difficult times.

Faculty, staff and administration continue to show great compassion for students, and that has never been more evident than the past week as we contemplate the challenges all of you are facing in this new reality. We all understand the uncertainty and anxiety that moving to an online teaching format may cause students, and we want to offer as much flexibility as possible to support the academic goals of our campus community.

With that in mind, we write today to give you information regarding a decision we have made regarding grading for spring 2020 semester. At this time, we will include the option of choosing to earn a pass/fail grade in place of a letter grade for all undergraduate and graduate students for spring 2020 semester. Students who wish to keep the letter grade they’ve earned may do so, rather than the pass/fail grade. This decision applies only to grades earned in spring 2020 semester.

We know many of you will have questions about this decision as well as the process of requesting to change your course grade from a letter grade to pass/fail and we are working on the details of that process. You will have the option to choose which courses you want changed to pass/fail – after you know what that letter grade will be.

Additional information will be coming from the Academic Dean’s Office in the next two weeks regarding this process and timelines.

We are making these modifications understanding the extraordinary circumstances COVID-19 has created for us all, and in the spirit of academic equity. We are aware that there are students – both in our undergraduate and in our graduate programs - who may face unique obstacles in their online learning experience.

We are grateful for the determination of you, our students, and our faculty to be flexible and finish the next six weeks strong.

Sincerely,
Margaret Noreuil PhD RN
Interim Vice President of Academic Affairs/Academic Dean

We Are Here For You

On March 23, 2020, Edgewood College moved all classes fully online for the remainder of the Spring Semester. While teaching and learning may feel different this spring,  what has not changed is our commitment to our students, to our shared community, and to each other. While we (like many of us) are today in an online learning environment, we are first and foremost a community. Faculty and staff have produced a video that reminds students, and reminds all who are touched by this community, that “we are here for you.”
