This Isn’t a Normal Semester, We Shouldn’t Have Normal Grading

A universal ‘Pass/Fail’ policy for all Spring 2020 courses across the NYU global network levels the now uneven academic playing field and would benefit the greatest number of students. Serious consideration should be taken by the NYU administration of taking after schools like MIT and Smith College and making all courses for the remainder of the semester graded on a ‘Pass/Fail’ basis across the global network. If this is not possible, a policy that resembles New York’s ‘Pass/Fail’ policy for this semester should be taken on by Shanghai.
