Fall 2020 Classes Exempt from the Pass/No Pass Policy

Although the majority of undergraduate classes offered at Salem State during the fall 2020 semester may be taken on a Pass/No Pass basis, there are some courses that must be taken for a letter grade. Certain programs tied to external licensure, certification or accreditation may require students to take letter grades. All graduate courses will be graded normally.

The following list reflects courses where students must take letter grades during the fall 2020 semester. This list does not include specific information about support course requirements for majors that have minimum grade requirements for their support courses.  Students are encouraged to consult with their academic department for more information about their specific requirements.
