The Credit/D/Fail (Cr/D/F) grading policy was created to:
- Encourage exploration of other subjects outside their program of study
- Emphasize learning and academic exploration of the new and unfamiliar
- Expose 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 direct-entry undergraduate programs of study. They can take eligible elective courses for Credit, D, or Fail standing instead of percentage grades.
