    Swarthmore also has credit/no credit policy. Freshman get only CR/NC grades for 1st yr classes (both semesters). After that, students can elect to receive CR/NC in up to 4 classes. Unlike Brown where students chose S/NC or letters grades within the shopping period (first 2weeks), Swarthmore allows students to wait and see how they're doing in their classes before choosing the grading system - and Swarthmore lets students switch back to letter grades after requesting CR/NC if they want.

    " Credit/no credit deadline extended next semester
    By Micaela Baranello
    7:02 pm - 05/03/06

    Late last week, the faculty approved a proposal to extend the deadline to declare or remove credit/no credit status on a class. Previously, credit/no credit (also called “pass/fail”) status had to be declared within two weeks from the start of classes (during the add/drop period); now students have until nine weeks into the semester to add or remove credit/no credit status."

    MIT has pass/no record first semester and A/B/C/no record 2nd semester. It also lets you designate a maximum of two electives total from your junior+senior years as Pass/D/F.

    Worcester Polytech - A,B,C or "no record." (You still pay $$$ for the courses you "no record" in though. ;) )

    Swat's is only first semester, not all year (and then, as mentioned, the 4 additional ones whenever you want.)

    SUNY Binghamton had no failing grades when I was there (LOL - in the late 70's).

    I wouldn't suggest using this as a major factor for choosing schools, most schools have a very lenient window of opportunity for dropping/changing classes anyway.

    Caltech is on p/f for your first two terms. You need it too... You can p/f a number of electives later on as well.
