The Credit/D/Fail (Cr/D/F) grading policy was created to:
- Encourage exploration of other subjects outside students' programs of study.
- Emphasize learning and academic exploration of the new and unfamiliar.
- Introduce students to a broader-based curriculum.
The policy was supported by the AMS Council and approved by UBC Vancouver Senate in March of 2009.
Credit/D/Fail is available to students in some direct-entry undergraduate programs of study. They can take eligible elective courses for Credit, D, or Fail standing instead of percentage grades.
