Most importantly, continue to take precautions.  Call our Health Center (909) 274-4400 if you have any symptoms and we can assist you.  Take good care of yourself.  And don’t give up hope!  Your resiliency will get you through this and we are here to help!  Be sure to call on us if there is anything that we can do.

Frequently Asked Questions


    • How does Pass/No Pass work?
      • Students can change their “grading option” from receiving a letter grade of A, B, C, D, to a “Pass” or “No Pass” option for certain classes.  A “P” or “Pass” is equivalent to earning an A, B, or C letter grade.  A “NP” or “No Pass” is equivalent to earning a D or F.  If selected, P or NP marks will appear on the student’s transcript instead of a letter grade.  Mt. SAC, like many other colleges, is making this grading option available to students especially due to the unusual circumstances students are facing this Spring semester by moving all classes to being taught in a remote/online format.
      • Neither “P” nor “NP” grades are used in computation of grade point average such that a P doesn’t help to raise a student’s GPA and a NP doesn’t lower a student’s GPA. 
      • Students will earn units for A, B, C, D and P grades. For clarification, a “D” grade is considered an unsatisfactory grade, but students still earn units for courses completed with a “D” grade.  Students will not earn any unit credit for F and NP grades.  
      • For Mt. SAC, all prerequisite courses must be completed with a minimum grade of “C” or “P” grade. Mt. SAC requires a minimum grade of “C” or “P” to satisfy major course requirements. 
      • Students should discuss the P/NP grading options with a counselor to make sure they are making the best decision based on their major and transfer goals.  To make an appointment call (909) 274-4380, or see here for Online Counseling (email or video counseling).
