COVID-19 update 4.22.20

My Dear Students:

We know that the Covid-19 pandemic has presented you with a new set of challenges as you pursue your education. Naugatuck Valley Community College is committed to doing everything in our power to help you succeed. That’s why I am happy to report that at the direction of Connecticut State Colleges and Universities President Mark Ojakian, NVCC and the other Connecticut community colleges have adopted a pass/fail (credit/no credit) procedure for the spring semester.

That means you now have the option to convert any of the grades you earn in your spring 2020-semester courses to Pass (Credit) / Fail (No Credit) grading so that the courses do not affect your grade point average (GPA).

Please go to the Spring 2020 Grade Conversion website for more information and instructions about how to apply for the Pass (Credit) / Fail (No Credit) grading option.

Spring 2020 Grade Conversion (

Should you have any questions about the pass/fail process, please contact the CAPSS (Center for Academic Planning and Student Success) Office at

I hope this option gives you some peace of mind as you approach the end of the spring semester. Please continue to work hard in your spring classes and reach out to your professors and the ACE if you need assistance. 

Mil gracias y bendiciones,

Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D.
