The grade "PEN" indicates that the course work has been satisfactory but there is some persistent inadequacy in writing or reading. Instructors should refer a student to the Center for Academic Development and Enrichment (CADE) as soon as a problem is discovered and not wait to assign a "PEN" grade at the end of the term.

The "PEN" grade may be used when an instructor discovers a specific skill or deficiency (writing or reading) in a student’s work, but not in place of an "E" grade or an "I". Students who receive a "PEN" grade are required to start remediation during the next semester in residence.

When a "PEN" grade is given in a course, the deadline for completion of the course is the same as that for an Incomplete. The date by which an Incomplete must be made up falls in November for the fall semester and in April for the spring semester. Failure to complete the "PEN" by the deadline would result in a failing grade for the course. With the student’s consent, an instructor may extend the "PEN" grade whenever there is an educational advantage in doing so.

A form that specifies the remedial work that must be undertaken by the student must be filled out by the instructor for that course. The faculty member issuing a "PEN" grade must provide a brief, but clearly written statement of the exact skill to be mastered in order to pass a course. Students are not permitted to graduate with a "PEN" grade. Upon notification of the completion of a referred remediation, it is the instructor’s responsibility to remove the "PEN" grade via a grade change form.
