NOTICE: Effective with the Fall 2004 semester students must receive a "C" or better for a grade to be converted to CR for students enrolled in a CR/NC option.
Undergraduate or graduate students electing a course below 500 level for undergraduate credit may take courses on a Credit/No Credit basis subject to regulations summarized here. The option is elected (or removed) by submitting an Undergraduate Credit/No Credit Request Card to the Registrar's Office, Warriner 212, or the Student Service Court, Lower Level Bovee University Center 119, before the published deadline. A student who officially elects the credit/no credit option for a course may not change the registration to a letter grade designation after the deadline.
The deadline for submitting a CR/NC card is Friday of the third week of classes for full semester (16-week) classes. (See Calendar).
Departments designate which of their courses may be taken on a credit/no credit basis and whether such credit may be applied to a major or a minor. A department may offer certain courses exclusively on a credit/no credit basis after approval by the appropriate curricular authorities and publication in the University Bulletin.
The instructor is not notified when a course is taken credit/no credit and assigns the student a letter grade. The grade is converted to credit or no credit according to the following guidelines. The student earns credit (CR) for the course and credit toward graduation when a grade of C or better is assigned. No credit (NC) is earned when the assigned grade is C-, D+, D, D-, or E. The course appears on the student's permanent record with the CR or NC grade, but the grade has no effect on the grade point average. Please note that if it is a course needed to complete university competency requirements, a student must earn a grade of "C" or better to earn competency.
A maximum of 25 semester hours of credit earned under the credit/no credit option may be applied toward an undergraduate degree. Courses exclusively offered on this basis are not included in the 25-hour restriction.
