Penn State has implemented Optional Alternative Grading to address impacts caused by the novel coronavirus public health crisis. For each course a student completes during the spring 2020 semester, they will have the option of replacing the letter grade they earn with an alternative grade that will not be included in their GPA calculation.

Please visit for detailed information about this option. If you plan to use an alternative grade for any of your courses, please contact the Office of Student Aid to discuss how this decision may impact your current or future financial aid.
