UCSB Engineering


Grading Sub-Topics:

Important notes to keep in mind:

  1. All courses required or acceptable for use in the major must be taken for a letter grade. For Engineering majors, any major requirements taken on a P/NP basis will be changed to a letter grade when the College of Engineering Undergraduate Office staff review your file at the end of the quarter.
  2. At the time of graduation, at least 120 units, or two-thirds of the units earned in residence at UCSB must be taken for a letter grade. Since the engineering majors require more than 120 units of major requirements, this usually isn't a problem for students that enter as freshmen.
  3. P grades are assigned for coursework equivalent to a C or better on the letter grade basis. NP grades are assigned for coursework equivalent to a C- or below. No credit is given for courses in which a student receives a NP.
  4. For courses taken on a letter graded basis, a grade of D- or better is considered passing and the student will receive credit for the course. Please note that some courses require that a certain grade be achieved in the prerequisite courses in order to enroll. Most notably, all ECE courses require a C- or better in prerequisite courses and the Math 3A-B-C and 5A-B-C sequences require a C or better in order to move on to the next course in the sequence.
