To whom does this Pass/Fail policy apply to?

This policy applies to all Wagner students – undergraduate and graduate. However, please note for undergraduate and graduate programs in Physician Assistant Students, Nursing, and Education, students do have restrictions, as New York State has GPA requirements that restrict a student’s ability to select P/F. These restrictions are noted directly below.

Physician Assistant: students must not take any courses Pass/Fail.

Nursing: Nursing (NR) courses cannot be taken Pass/Fail. Also, undergraduate students planning to enter the B.S., Nursing program cannot take the following courses on a Pass/Fail basis: Biology 209, Biology 210, Microbiology 200, Nursing 224, and Psychology 101, Sociology 101, or Anthropology 101.

Education: Education (ED) courses cannot be taken Pass/Fail. Also, Dual majors in Education cannot take MA 119 or higher on a Pass/Fail basis.

Can student-athletes make their courses Pass/Fail?

The NCAA is reviewing the impact of these adverse learning conditions and the different policies that Division I schools are employing. Student-athletes should be guided by NCAA guidelines. These are expected to be updated by March 30th, well before our May 1st deadline. Please check with your academic and athletics advisor as well as the CACE office.

Will Pass/Fail affect my financial aid eligibility?

It is possible that pass/fail courses may impact a student’s financial aid eligibility.  Grades of pass/fail are incorporated into the financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy.  Both pass and fail grades will be counted toward rate of completion. In addition, if a student’s cumulative GPA already is below 2.0, the GPA will not change if they exercise pass/fail option for all courses in spring 2020, and the cumulative GPA is less likely to change the fewer courses are given letter (A-F) grades. In this case, a student will not meet the minimum requirement for SAP and their financial aid could be in jeopardy.  Please refer to the SAP policy for additional guidance.

 

Can international students make their courses Pass/Fail?

There are no expected visa-related impacts on international students who elect to make their courses to P/F.

Can students on Academic Probation make their courses Pass/Fail?

Students on Academic Probation may elect to take their courses P/F, but their GPA will not be significantly improved, so discuss with your advisor or the CACE office prior to making the switch to P/F.

What if I am retaking a course? Can I make that Pass/Fail?

A course used as a replacement for a previously taken courses, including tutorial(s), may be taken P/F – with knowledge that the student loses the benefit of significantly improving their GPA.

 

How do I make a spring 2020 class Pass/Fail?

You can use this form to make your request to make a spring 2020 course Pass/Fail.

How many of my spring 2020 courses can I make Pass/Fail?

For most students (with the exceptions of PA, Nursing, and Education), there is no limit on the number of spring 2020 courses/units/credits allowed to be taken Pass/Fail.

What is the deadline to make a course Pass/Fail?

The deadline is May 1, 2020.

If I make a course Pass/Fail, can I choose to change it back to a letter grade?

No. The decision to switch to P/F is irreversible. 

If I make a course Pass/Fail, how is my grade determined?

The instructor of your class will assign a letter grade at the end of the semester. Letter grades of A-D will convert to a Pass. F grades will remain a Fail.

How does making a course Pass/Fail affect my GPA?

A grade of “P” will not affect your overall GPA.

A grade of “F” will affect your GPA as an F would under typical circumstances.

How does making a course Pass/Fail affect the Dean’s List?

Students’ ability to receive “Dean’s List” distinction will be impacted by the decision to take more than 2 classes as P/F.  This will make a student ineligible for “Dean’s List” honors in spring 2020.

Will I get the units for courses I make Pass/Fail?

If you get a “P” for the course, and if the course earns units currently, you will earn the same units.

If you earn an “F,” you will not earn the units.

Can a Pass/Fail course meet General Education and Key Skills & Knowledge requirements?

If you get a “P” for the course, you will earn Key Skills and Knowledge Areas, the writing-intensive designation, “D”s, and “I”s.

If you earn an “F,” you will not earn these designations.

How will a Pass/Fail course appear on my transcript?

Courses made Pass/Fail will appear either with a “P” or an “F,” depending on what is earned.

The College’s Academic Policy Committee has approved the addition of a semester-level comment to the official Wagner College academic transcript stating, e.g., “Spring 2020 courses were completed during the coronavirus pandemic.”

If I have additional questions, who should I contact?

We encourage you to speak with your faculty advisor about your choice and about any impact your choices might have for success in future courses or admissions to future programs.

For questions about specific programs and majors, we suggest you contact the Dean, Program Director, or Chair of the program, department, or School.

You may also want to contact academic advisors in CACE (cace@wagner.edu), advisors in Athletics, or the Registrar’s Office (registrar@wagner.edu).

Study Abroad 

As of March 19, 2020 and until further notice, the U.S. State Department has issued a Global Health Level 4 Travel Advisory – Do not Travel. Wagner College emphasizes the importance for all students to follow the recommendations of DOS and arrange for an immediate return to the United States or your country of permanent residence. All present Spring 2020 semester study abroad participants have returned to the United States.

To help ensure the ongoing health and safety of the community, Wagner College expects students to follow the revised CDC guidance instructing travelers to stay home for a period of 14 days from departure of a level 3 country. 

The Center for Intercultural Advancement is advising all students not to choose to study abroad in summer sessions 1 and highly recommend considering any present registration in a summer study abroad program.  Students should consider participating in fall programs or spring 2021.

Program Partners Policy Regarding Summer 2020 Study Abroad and Announcement of Summer 2020 Programs  Cancelation.

IES Abroad

All IES summer and fall 2020 programs are not suspended and applications remain open for students. 

Refund policy:

In response to the unprecedented impact of the coronavirus situation, for all upcoming Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 standard study abroad and internship programs only, IES Abroad will issue full refunds of program fees (including the $500 Confirmation Deposit) for any payment submitted directly to IES Abroad for students who decide to withdraw up to the day before the program’s official published arrival date.

API Abroad Summer Programs Cancellation

API Abroad has made the difficult decision to cancel ALL Summer 1 2020 programs.

Refund Policy: 

API will issue students a full refund of all program fees paid to API if they elect to withdraw their API application completely.  Should students wish to consider a fall program or another summer program with a later start date, we would be more than happy to accommodate them, provided they have full approval from their home institution. API will transfer all payments made to date to the new program if students elect to defer to a future term (within 1 calendar year).

 

CIS Abroad Summer Programs Cancellation 

CIS abroad has made the difficult decision to cancel or push back our study programs in May, and some of our programs for the summer. Please note – programs and sessions not listed below are OPEN.

Session 1 Cancelled (May start dates) for the following summer programs:

  • Summer in Argentina 
  • Summer in Hawaii 
  • Summer in Florence 
  • Summer in Rome 
  • Summer on the Italian Coast – Sant’Anna Institute
  • Summer in Barcelona – Barcelona School for International Studies 

ALL sessions cancelled for the following summer programs:

  • Semester in Thailand (Summer 2020)
  • Summer in Thailand
  • Summer in Ecuador
  • Summer in Tokyo – J.F. Oberlin University
  • Summer in Perugia
  • Summer in Asia at J.F. Oberlin University & Kyung Hee University (NOTE: Summer in Asia at Seisen University & Kyung Hee University is NOT cancelled)
  • Intern in London
  • Intern in Rome
  • Intern in Thailand
  • TEFL in Japan
  • TEFL in Thailand

Start date postponed for the following program:

  • Summer in Costa Rica – May start pushed back to June

Refund Policy

My program has been cancelled and the CIS Abroad refund policy says that I will be reimbursed “recoverable funds”. What funds are recoverable?

Costs are incurred throughout the lifecycle of a study abroad experience – pre-departure, while onsite and upon program completion.  Additionally many of our overseas partners require payments up-front. While we work to create the most flexible terms we possibly can, each partner has their own refund policies.  If the costs for your program upon withdrawal/cancellation have already been realized on resources that cannot be recovered, or if a partner’s refund policy does not allow for the return of the full pre-paid fee, we will be limited in our ability in what we can recover.  Only fees that can be recovered and have not already been consumed can be refunded.

What is the refund policy if students voluntarily choose to withdraw from a program because of concerns about the Coronavirus?

Basically, a student who chooses to withdraw from a program that is not cancelled will follow CIS Abroad’s standard refund policy. We are currently working to extend our Application and Final Payment Deadlines for Summer and Fall programs so students have as much time as possible to decide if they want to fully commit to a program. Students can expect updates from Program Enrollment Coordinators on these deadlines and we’ve updated specific programs on the website in which we are able to extend the deadline. 

Sol Education 

SOL education had to make the difficult decision to cancel all summer programs with a May start date:

 SUM I – Buenos Aires, Argentina (May 24 – Jun 19)

 SUM I – Heredia, Costa Rica (May 9 – May 30) 

 SUM II – Heredia, Costa Rica (May 30 – Jun 20)

 SUM I – Oaxaca, Mexico (May 9 – Jun 6)

 SUM I – Granada, Spain (May 28 – Jul 01)

Currently all other summer programs that have a June, July and August start date have not been cancelled.

Can I still apply to study abroad in Fall 2020?

Currently, fall study abroad programs are moving forward as planned. Please keep in mind that this can change at any time in accordance with how things progress with the coronavirus, including college and government responses. 

Questions regarding program updates and/or  travel reservations should be forwarded to CICA staff members:
Ellen Navarro, Director  ellen.navarro@wagner.edu

How do I go about moving out of my Spring 2020 housing assignment? 

Residential Education has identified 5 options to help students consider their item removal.  The options are:
  • Option 1: Students who have already checked out and want to confirm their departure.
  • Option 2: Students who would like to return to campus for a 4 hour period between May 18-June 18 may request a specific time.
  • Option 3: Students can select to have their items packed, stored and redelivered to their Fall 2020 housing assignment through an exclusive partnership with Collegiate Storage and Rental. An initial rate has been negotiated for students.
  • Option 4: Students can select to have their items packed and shipped directly to them. Students will be responsible for the shipping fees which vary based on weight, freight, taxes, and shipping destination.
  • Option 5: Students can send a proxy to move out on their behalf.

If I am coming to campus, can I bring anyone to help me move out? 
Yes! You can bring up to 2 individuals to assist you. All parties coming to campus are required to bring their own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including gloves and face masks/covering.  If you do not have these items, you will not be permitted on campus.  All parties who report to campus must meet the following criterion: (1) wear their own PPE, including gloves and face mask, at all times while on campus and (2) be symptom-free (e.g. free of fever, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath, gastrointestinal, cold, and other flu like symptoms) for at least 14 days prior to arrival on campus.  Please be conscious of this as you prepare to come to campus.

How is Wagner incorporating social distancing guidelines? 
 
Our facilities team is actively cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting our facilities. In addition, we are limiting the amount of individuals who can move out during each 4 hour window.  We are not approving individuals to move out who would be in close proximity or permitting roommates to move out at the same time.

I would like to remove my items before May 18. How do I do that? 
 
If you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact ResEd@wagner.edu to submit your request.

Can I move out after June 18? 
 
Unfortunately, we will need all items removed by June 18, 2020.

Can I come to campus and pack my belongings, and then have it stored or shipped with Collegiate Storage and Rental? 
 
This may be an option, but your return to campus should be done before May 20, 2020. We will be working with CSR to have items removed starting on the 20th. If you would like to explore this option, please contact ResEd@wagner.edu and we will set up a phone call or video chat to discuss specifics.

I have items in my room that have to be returned to campus. What should I do? 
Please make sure you contact the person(s) who you have to get items back to.  Residential Education will assist as much as possible.

  • How can/should fraternities and sororities continue their new member programs?
    • Fraternities and Sororities should first consult with their inter/national headquarters (if applicable) to seek guidance on how to proceed. SEA’s recommendation is to continue any education/activities in an online format if possible (via zoom, google hangouts, etc), and plan for any in-person components to occur this fall.
