Given the fact that COVID-19 has forced classes to be online, the students of Auburn University believe that the University should take the appropriate action in allowing students to choose whether or not their classes will be graded based on a number scale or a pass/fail scale. COVID-19 has put so much burden on us students and has touched so many of the us, in so many different ways. Many, if not all of the classes being offered have an added level of difficulty while being taken in an online setting. We are not getting the same in-depth conversations and learning environment that we would have if we were taking classes in a traditional setting. With this added level of difficulty due to online classes and the other added stressors in a students life outside of school, the traditional grading process does not account for that and the difficulties we all are faced with during this time. The students of  Auburn University are such a diverse body, however this time it is important to recognize how we, the faculty and staff are a family. It is nearly impossible to list all of the different circumstances that COVID-19 has brought upon the Auburn family, due to the fact that every person has their own struggles and setbacks facing them on a daily basis. A grade relief option is necessary for Auburn University to stand together with their students, as a family, who have all been affected by this global pandemic. 

Other institutions have implemented the grade relief that we, Auburn students, are seeking. We demand Auburn University prioritize our students' and staffs' mental and physical health and safety by offering an emergency Pass/Fail grading option for every course this semester.
