What was the process for students to take advantage of alternative grading in spring?

Spring 2020 students were given the option of replacing one or more letter grades with alternative grades that would not be included in their GPA calculation. These alternative grading options applied to all undergraduate students taking spring 2020 courses, including Penn State World Campus students and those returning from study abroad. Graduate students followed alternative grading standards established by The Graduate School. Students had until May 29 to select alternative grading. Review the details about the alternative grading, and if you want to discuss your individual circumstances, contact your academic adviser.
