Pass/Fail Credit

The implementation of a Pass/Fail Credit or “experiential credit” was one of the items on the AMS executive's platform. Planning has begun with the help of ASUS President and Vice-President, Brandon Jamieson and Andrew DiCapua and Read Leask, the academic affairs commissioner, with the hope that the program will come into effect as soon as next academic year.
