Pass/ Fail Option for Notre Dame Undergrads Spring 2020

This petition made change with 4,079 supporters!

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak across the United States, the University of Notre Dame has opted to cancel all in person instruction for the remainder of the spring semester. 

Given the rigor of the courses taken by students, it is impossible for academic performance to be on par with previous semesters due lack of access  to face to face instruction, tutoring, and student help options that are strictly found on campus. Every class should therefore be taken on a pass fail basis to ensure that student’s GPAs are not affected by the virus aftermath. The pass fail system will also ensure that student mental health is made a top priority in a time when concerns about the virus are already causing stress levels to rise. Online classes with strict grading will raise student stress levels.

Finally, a pass fail system for the spring semester will ensure parity among the Notre Dame community as some students may be tempted to act against the rules of academic honesty when learning from home. 

Please sign this petition to support student well being, academic parity, and learning efficiency for the spring semester at the University of Notre Dame!
