Effective Date: September 2008; Revised March 26, 2020; Revised February 4, 2021
Purpose: To define the AGEC applicability of Pass/Fail coursework.
Sources: APASC September, 2008
Responsibility & Approval: GEATF / AZTransfer Steering Committee

On an exception basis, P grades may be allowed in the AGEC for transfer credit, if documentation collected by the community college indicates that the P grade issued was the only option for the student and the P is C or Better. The P grade exception does not apply to credits awarded by Arizona public community and tribal colleges.

A grade of “Passing (P)” or “Satisfactory (S)” is not applicable to the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) except when awarded for a national standardized examination as described in AGEC Policy 302.

For Spring 2020 only, students who choose a “P” or “S” grade in an AGEC course in response to the COVID-19 emergency may use this grade to complete their AGEC requirements if allowed by their institution and where the institution defines a “P” or “S” as equivalent to a “C” or better. Arizona universities will accept “P” or “S” grades earned in AGEC courses during Spring 2020.
