Today Is The Last Day To P/D/F A Class. Here Is How You Do It.

It’s now or never, folks. 

If you’re barely pulling a C in a class and don’t foresee a turnaround anytime soon,  you don’t need to completely tank your GPA. There is a solution: P/D/F, baby.

Electing to P/D/F a course means:

  • A letter grade of A+ through C- will appear on your transcript as a P.
  • A letter grade of D will appear on your transcript as a D.
  • A letter grade of F will appear on your transcript as an F. (

Should you end up wanting to uncover the grade you’ve selected to P/D/F, you can do so after the semester ends and you have your sweet and sexy final grade. If not, whether that “P” is an A+ or a C- is your sneaky little secret; no one has to know!

You can P/D/F a course on SSOL (for Columbia students) or my.Barnard (for Barnard students). Instructions for SSOL can be found here, and instructions for my.Barnard are here.
