Has the Math department opted in or out of the P/NP policy for Winter 2021?

The Department of Mathematics has opted out of the P/NP policy for Winter 2021. This means that all major courses (including pre-major and preparation for the major courses) need to be taken for a letter grade as per our standard policy: 

 

"P/NP GRADING OPTION= Not allowed for major courses (prep or UD major), including courses applied to the major from other departments."

 

No exceptions will be made to this policy and you will need to continue to choose a letter grade for your grading option in order for courses to count towards the major requirements. This decision is for all Mathematics majors, including Financial Mathematics and Statistics. 

 

If you have any questions regarding non-major requirement courses, please contact the College of Letters and Science: https://www.duels.ucsb.edu/advising#Speak%20with%20advisor
