COVID-19 Pass/No Pass Petition

In response to the COVID-19 Crisis, Santiago Canyon College is extending the deadline for requesting a Pass/No Pass (P/NP) grading option. The deadline for Summer 2020 is August 17th, 2020 and the deadline for Fall 2020 is December 18th, 2020. You may download the petition here:  Petition to Change Grading to Pass/No Pass Due to COVID-19 Crisis


 Students selecting this option will receive a “P" for Pass (equivalent of grade C or better) or “NP" for No Pass (equivalent to a substandard grade of D or F) at the end of the semester.  Once you submit your petition, you cannot change the grading option back to a standard letter grade.  A P/NP grade during Spring 2020, Summer 2020, and Fall 2020  will not affect your progress/academic probation or dismissal status.  If you earn a NP for a course during Spring 2020, Summer 2020, or Fall 2020, it will not count towards the permitted number of attempts.


Petitions will not be accepted without a SCC counselor review and signature.  To meet with a SCC counselor, visit:
