Graduate P/D/F Option

Graduate students may register for a total of no more than one subject per term in which they choose to receive P/D/F grading rather than regular grades, where P means C- or better performance.

The subject for which the student registers cannot be used to fulfill degree requirements, including the required subject units for any degree program.

The grade of P is not used in the calculation of term and cumulative ratings (grade point averages) but D and F grades are used.

The student must elect the subject and notify the Registrar by the end of the fifth week of the term (Add Date).

Instructors may disallow graduate P/D/F grading in the subjects they teach and departments may disallow P/D/F grading for students in any of their department's graduate degree programs.

Registering for a subject specifically designated as P/D/F in the MIT Course Catalog and online subject listing does not count as using the Graduate P/D/F option for the term.
