Optional Grading Basis
Undergraduate students in good academic standing can change the grading basis on optionally graded courses using MyUCLA with no fee during the first two weeks of the term. In weeks three through six, students are charged a per-class change fee. Changes after Friday of week six require a petition; if approved, students are charged a per-class change fee plus a per-class penalty fee.
Mandatory Grading Basis
Courses with a mandatory (non-optional) grading basis (e.g., Letter Grade only, Passed/Not Passed, Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory) are designated LG, PN, or SU in MyUCLA. Undergraduate students in good academic standing must petition to request a change in grading basis for these courses. The deadline for undergraduates to petition for change is Friday of the sixth week of the term.
