Spring 2020 Policies

Undergraduate Students

Typically, all courses taken for credit toward our majors and minors in Linguistics must be taken for a letter grade with the exception of LIGN 199. In compliance with this campuswide announcement, the Linguistics Department is amending that policy for Spring 2020 courses: all Spring 2020 courses can be taken for P/NP and still count toward our majors and minors. Students will be able to change their grading option for a course through the end of Week 10. Please note that courses taken for P/NP in Spring 2020 will not count towards the 25% cap on courses taken for P/NP for the Bachelor’s degree, and that courses taken for P/NP are not included in calculations of GPA.

In addition, the deadline to add a course is extended to the end of Week 3, and the deadline to drop, without a W, is extended to the end of Week 5. The deadline for undergraduate students to drop a course, with a W, is extended to the end of Week 7. Undergraduate students may petition to drop a class or withdraw from the University after the end of Week 7 and by the end of Week 10 for emergency reasons. These petitions are decided by the college provost.For more information, please see these FAQs.

Graduate Students

Typically, all graduate courses taken for credit toward the PhD in Linguistics must be taken for a letter grade with the exception of LIGN 293. In compliance with this campuswide announcement, the Linguistics Department is amending that policy for Spring 2020 courses: all Spring 2020 courses can be taken for S/U and still count toward the PhD degree. Students will be able to change their grading option for a course through the end of Week 10.

In addition, the deadline to add a course is extended to the end of Week 3, and the deadline to drop, without a W, is extended to the end of Week 5. The deadline for graduate students to drop a course or all courses, with the assignment of a W grade(s), is the end of Week 9 (no change). A graduate student may petition to drop a course or withdraw from the University for emergency reasons after the end of Week 9 and before the end of Week 10. For such petitions, approval may be granted by the Dean of the Graduate Division.

For more information, please see these FAQs (information for graduate students begins on p. 3).

Zoom

Zoom - You do not need a license to join a zoom meeting, however UCSD does provide zoom accounts to students free of charge. You will need to set up an account if you would like to create or set up your own meetings (this may be of interest to students for collaboration purposes). You may also need to set up an account for specific course purposes. Setting up an account is quick and easy.
