Other Advising Notes

For Spring 2020 Term ONLY:

The UO Provost’s office announced changes in academic policies for winter and spring term 2020.

Among these changes is that for Spring term 2020 students can change their grading option for a course any time until July 16th, and changing to P/NP will not count against the limit of 12 credits of P/NP and 168 required graded credits. For this term a special P* grade will be assigned.

In response, the Asian Studies program will allow Asian Studies majors and minors to take classes for the Asian Studies major and minor as P/NP during Spring 2020. A P* grade in classes taken Spring 2020 will count for the Asian Studies major or minor.
