The COL faculty believes in providing choices to help students manage difficult circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the spring 2020 semester, students were given the option to choose to have either all letter grades reflected on their transcripts or to have all pass/fail grades reflected on their transcripts. Consequently, class percentile bands were only provided for the fall 2019 semester.
