The deadline to file a request form to designate a class as Pass/Fail is Monday, October 17th. You can find the request form here: http://www.hofstra.edu/pdf/StudentAffairs/StudentServices/acdrec/acadrec_passfail-ug_new.pdf
As you will see on the request form, there are A LOT of restrictions on the types of classes that can be taken Pass/Fail. You can’t use it for WSC, major requirements, minor requirements, distribution courses, or language courses.
You do not need to meet with me before filing the Pass/Fail request form with the Office of Academic Records and Registrar in Memorial 213, but I would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns if you are considering this option.
