Dear Simpson College Community,

We have received several inquiries related to grading procedures for this semester in light of the move to online learning. Below you will find a Q & A related to some of the questions we have received.

Simpson Grading Policies for Spring 2020

  1. Q. Is Simpson College considering moving to a Pass/Fail option for grading?
  1. Simpson College will not be moving to a Pass/Fail grading system for Spring 2020.
  2. How will changing to online delivery of courses impact instruction?
  3. While we are changing modalities of instruction from face-to-face to the online delivery of courses, it is the intent that the same learning outcomes will be achieved, thus not requiring a different approach to grading.
  4. Who should I contact with questions related to my GPA?
  5. Please continue to reach out to your individual professor and/or your academic advisor with course questions.
