Academic Policies and Procedures

Credit/No Credit Grades

Courses that have been designated in the Schedule of Classes as credit/no credit are entered on transcripts as either CR, if students earned credits for which the course was offered, or N, if students did not earn any credit, even though they were enrolled for the course. Approval to offer a course on a credit/no credit basis requires action by the appropriate Divisional Executive Committee and college dean, and the course must be designated as such in the current Schedule of Classes. Any course that is taken at 300 or above for credit/no credit will count toward the Graduate School’s minimum graduate degree credit requirement and the minimum graduate residence credit requirement (including 300-level courses in English as a Second Language). Visit the Office of the Registrar's Grades and Grading Policy webpage for more information.
