By Daniel DiPrinzio | April 7, 2020
Dear students, faculty, and staff, 

Due to the unprecedented challenges and disruption brought on by COVID-19, the following College of Health Sciences programs are adopting a pass/fail grading policy for the spring 2020 semester: the entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy program (based on course requirements for specific cohorts) and the Public Health undergraduate and graduate programs. 

Please Note: 

  • The Physician Assistant, Transitional DPT / IDPT program, and the Genetic Counseling program are not adopting the pass/fail grading policy. 
  • The PA, PH, and PT programs will accept a “Passing” grade for any prerequisites that are taken during this semester. This applies to all programs and includes the assured admissions pathways for Arcadia, James Madison, Messiah, West Chester University, and University of Delaware.
