J.D. Course Selection FAQ


a. Is there any limit on how many Pass/No Pass classes I can take?

At UCLA, officially, pass/fail classes are graded on a Pass/Unsatisfactory/No Credit (P/U/NC) basis rather than merely “pass or fail.” There are no limits on the number of classes a student may take on a P/U/NC basis. However, students who are seeking to graduate in the Order of the Coif (top 10% of the class) must earn at least 75% of their UCLA Law units in letter-graded classes.

In addition, classes are already designated as letter-graded or P/U/NC prior to enrollment, which means a student cannot make a class pass/fail if it is designated as a letter-graded course (classes are what they are!).
