STU senate to vote on pass/fail option for courses this semester

    (Caitlin Dutt/AQ)

    St. Thomas University Students’ Union president, Husoni Raymond, is bringing a proposal to the university senate today on pass or fail systems for courses given the impact COVID-19 pandemic has had on courses, students, professors and the community.

    With this proposed system, he said at a STUSU Student Representative Council meeting, students can choose to complete the remainder of their coursework and receive a letter grade or they can choose to go by the pass or fail system, if students want to take care of their mental health or for any other reason.

    Raymond said the pass or fail system will ideally not affect scholarships because students will still receive the credit hours if they pass and the plan is for STU to use the GPA from last semester.

    The senate meeting will be at 4 p.m. today.
