Computation of Graduation Credits: Pass/Fail Credit

In determining whether a student has earned the required number of credits for graduation, several limitations apply:

  1. Absent approval in writing from Chair of the Academic Standards Committee, no student may count more than 12 credit hours earned in courses graded on a Pass/Fail basis toward the total number of hours required for graduation;
    • Credits earned in the Bar Preparation course, the Legal Skills, and the Academic Skills courses as well as the Summer Honors Course and the Presidential Honors Seminar, are exempt from this limit;
  2. No more than a total of 4 of the credit hours required for graduation may be in the form of Law Journal, Moot Court, or Independent Study credit; and,
  3. No more than 8 of the credit hours required for graduation may be in the form of externship credit.
