Spring 2020 Credit/No Credit
Credit/no credit option: The Grading System described in University Senate Rules and Regulations (Article II, Section 2) will be modified for the spring 2020 semester to allow most students the choice of a credit/no credit option.
It is important that the grading policy adopted by KU at this time does not further damage the ability of students to make progress toward completion of their degree program. Nor should we take any action that may negatively impact a student’s ability to complete licensure requirements or graduate program requirements. Therefore, and especially in licensure courses required in some fields, any student who is considering requesting a change to credit/no credit (CR/NC) is strongly encouraged to receive approval by an academic advisor or associate dean before making this change. Further, it is important to note that, if the CR/NC is not currently permitted by a school or program for a licensure course, it will not be permitted as part of this policy. Students should consult with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships and their advisor before changing grading options for their course(s).
188.8.131.52 - For spring 2020 term, courses that currently use letter grades will continue to use letter grades. However, students may individually opt to receive grades of credit/no credit through the form below. All requests for credit/no credit grading option must be submitted using the below form no later than 11:59 p.m., April 17. Students may select to change one or all of their classes in which they are enrolled (if changing more than one course to Credit/No Credit the form will need to be submitted for each course individually).
- Undergraduate students: Consult with an academic advisor before electing credit/no credit. Advisors should record notes in Jayhawk GPS that they consulted with the student.
- Graduate students: Work with an advisor to submit changes to course grading options. Law School students, please refer to the grading policy update shared by Dean Mazza.
184.108.40.206 - Undergraduate students: Courses taken during the spring 2020 semester for credit/no credit, that are satisfactorily completed, can count toward a student’s undergraduate major requirements. Courses graded credit/no credit do not count in computing grade point average. When a student changes academic programs, any satisfactorily completed credits accumulated during the spring 2020 will be accepted by the new KU department. Graduate students: Courses graded credit/no credit may be taken in a graduate program if the course is not needed to fulfill hours toward the satisfaction of requirements. No course graded credit/no credit can count toward the satisfaction of the requirements for a graduate degree or a graduate certificate, except in the School of Law.
220.127.116.11 - Students will choose to receive either the letter grade recorded by the instructor OR a credit /no credit designation by the deadline, April 17. Faculty will grade students as usual during the semester, and submit the letter grade (A-F, I) to the University Registrar following the standard submission process.
