WGS Letter to Students re: Grading Under Covid-19
Dear WGS Students:
We here in the WGS Department hope that you are all safely and comfortably self-quarantining. We understand that this time has been strange, eventful and stressful, and we appreciate all you are doing to stay healthy and remain engaged with your studies.
One of the biggest changes being the CR/NC grading option that is now in place for the Spring 2020 semester. You’ll be hearing more specifics about this change from The College in the near future. At this time WGS would like to clarify that courses taken for a grade as well as those taken for CR will count towards your WGS major/minor.
Additional resources on this subject are listed below for your reference.
If there is anything we can do to support you please don’t hesitate to reach out. (434) 806-5864, firstname.lastname@example.org

- Undergraduate Program Directors: implications for majors and minors
- Students can contact their Association Dean in Monroe Hall (see above)
- You can share the following language: Because graduate and professional schools are updating policies as the pandemic progresses, students should research their top schools of interest for website updates regarding policies on accepting CR/NC due to COVID-19.
Thank you for your time,
