A student may either elect to enroll in the college courses for a letter grade or they may take the course pass/fail if the course has been set up with a student-choice option. Students who select a pass/fail option must do so during the Credit Selection Type Period at the beginning of the semester.
- If a student takes the course for a letter grade and earns credit, the letter grade they earn for the course will appear on their transcript from The University of Texas at Austin.
- If a student takes the course pass/fail and earns credit, the transcript will not show a letter grade but only that the student passed or failed the class. A pass will show CR on the student's transcript. A letter grade of D- or better is considered passing.
- Each institution of higher education has its own policies and procedures regarding credit earned at another college or University. You must check with the institution you plan to attend in order to determine the specific transferability and applicability policies of credit for a letter grade or a Pass credit (CR). Courses with a Core Curriculum designation in the right column of the Table 1 below are required to transfer to any public institution in the state of Texas.
- Some OnRamps courses have TCCN equivalency numbers approved by UT Austin. To see the equivalency of those and other courses at various institutions visit www.tccns.org
