Emergency Modification to Pass/Fail Grading Policy for Undergraduates for Spring 2020

Effective March 31, 2020, East Tennessee State University will implement an Emergency Grading Accommodation for undergraduate students. Undergraduate students may request the pass/fail option for some or all undergraduate courses in which they are registered in the Spring 2020 semester. Please visit the following link to Read the full policy for undergraduate and graduate accommodations.


The purpose of this site is to...

  • Provide information relevant to the mission of the Office of the Provost;

  • Provide the organizational structure and administrative and academic support offices reporting to the Provost;

  • Provide links to academic programs across campus, along with administrative and academic support areas;

  • Provide a venue for highlighting recipients of the University's most recent Distinguished Faculty Awards in Teaching, Research, and Service;

  • Provide you - the students, faculty, staff, and guests who visit our site - the opportunity to help us improve it by indicating information that was particularly useful as well as where information that would have been useful to you is missing from the site; and,

  • Provide you with a mechanism for offering suggestions that will help us serve you better.
