Special Policy for Pass/Fail Transfer for Spring 2020 Courses

Under normal operating conditions, Delaware Valley University does not allow a course with a grade of “Pass” to transfer to the University. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic many institutions have altered their grading schemes to allow, or require, students to take courses “Pass / Fail”.

Considering the current situation, Delaware Valley University will accept grades of “Pass” (or grade equivalent) for undergraduate courses earned in the Spring 2020 term from other accredited institutions. Students transferring in grades of “Pass” to fulfill pre-requisites should be aware that grades of “C” or better are normally accepted at the University and are responsible for being prepared for courses in which these transfer courses are pre-requisites.

Delaware Valley University was named a great school for transfer students by Phi Theta Kappa.
DelVal Named One of the Most Transfer-Friendly Schools in the U.S.
