University of Colorado Boulder will allow students to convert most of their spring courses to a pass or fail credit, rather than a letter grade, in response to the upheaval caused by the spread of coronavirus.

In the past two weeks, CU Boulder students have switched all of their classes online and on-campus students have been asked to move off campus as soon as possible.

Provost Russell Moore said the decision was made in consultation with the Boulder Faculty Assembly and deans of schools and colleges.

“I recognize that it has been far from easy, especially for our students, who have had to face tremendous upheaval in all aspects of their lives,” Moore wrote in a letter to campus Thursday.

University of Colorado Law School degrees will not be included in the pass or fail option, but instead will either give credit or no credit for spring courses.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
