If I choose to be graded on a Pass/Unsatisfactory basis, will potential employers view this negatively when reviewing my transcript?

Employers typically do not closely analyze each semester’s grades. Most often, the transcript may be used to verify that a degree was earned or verify a student’s GPA. We anticipate that organizations around the world will view Spring 2020 as a unique semester with unique circumstances that resulted in many universities offering similar opportunities to their students. There will be a statement on your transcript regarding this particular semester’s grading option.

How will the Pass/Unsatisfactory grading impact my financial aid?

Your financial aid is based on a review of both qualitative (Cumulative GPA) and quantitative (Rate of Complete/PACE) aspects of your academic performance. Your GPA will not be impacted. The quantitative component (PACE) will be impacted. You must still pass 67% of ALL attempted coursework. If you are in jeopardy of losing your financial aid, please consult with the financial aid office. For more information: https://www.fmuniv.edu/financial-aid/satisfactory-academic-progress/
