The Registrar’s office provides many important services to incoming, current, and former Converse students such as distributing transcripts, conducting registration, keeping and updating student records, reporting grades, and providing verification of enrollment. The Registrar serves as the designated school official for international students.
Temporary Change To Pass/Fail Policy
Students were advised on April 9, 2020 that Converse is temporarily expanding eligibility for courses to qualify for “pass/fail” status. The permanent policy is found on pages 35-36 of the Converse Undergraduate Catalog.
- The temporary policy in force as of 4/9/2020 and for the spring 2020 semester only:
- Replaces P/F with Credit (CR), Credit with D (CRD), and No Credit (NC). Using CR/CRD/NC will allow the college to keep this semester and its circumstances separate from P/F courses on a student transcript. NC does not earn course credit but does not impact GPA, as an “F” would.
- Waives the minimum GPA requirement in place for taking courses CR/CRD/NC
- Waives the minimum number of completed credits required to take courses CR/CRD/NC
- Waives the maximum number of course hours students may take CR/CRD/NC for spring 2020 only; students you may take one or all of your spring 2020 courses CR/CRD/NC.
Unlike the current policy, the temporary policy recommends but does not require adviser approval for student election of the CR/CRD/NC option prior to the end of exam week and the beginning of the posting of grades, which is Thursday, May 14, 2020. Any changes to grade status requested by the student after May 14th must be approved by the student’s academic adviser or dean.
