Grade Change Information

AB 167 allows school districts to grant a request from the parent/guardian/education rights holder of a pupil who was enrolled in high school during the 2020-21 academic year (or the pupil, if 18 years of age or older) to have a letter grade earned for any course, as reflected on the pupil’s transcript, changed to a Pass or No Pass grade. The school district may not limit the number or type of courses eligible for the grade change.

The bill requires the California State University to accept for admission purposes, without prejudice, a transcript with a Pass or No Pass grade instead of a letter grade (pursuant to the provisions of this bill) for an applicant who had enrolled in a California high school during any school year from the 2020-21 school year to the 2023-24 school year, inclusive.

A list of postsecondary educational institutions operating in California that have indicated that they will comply with the encouraged policy to accept a transcript with a Pass or No Pass grade instead of a letter grade can be found here.

Contact your school's counselor's office for any questions.
