Credit/No Credit

Spring 2021 Credit/No Credit

Credit/No Credit for Spring 2021 courses will open on May 24, 2021. Any forms submitted prior to May 24, 2021 will be denied and a new request will need to be submitted after May 24, 2021. If you are enrolled in a short course for Spring 2021 you will be allowed to submit the form after the official grade for your course has posted and been reviewed. 

Fall 2020 Credit/No Credit

The Grading System described in University Senate Rules and Regulations (Article II, Section 2) was modified for the fall 2020 semester to allow most students the choice of a credit/no credit option through April 30, 2021. *CR/NC Deadlines for Graduating Students: To ensure degrees can be certified, eligible students expecting to complete their degree during the fall 2020 semester have until 11:59 p.m., January 8, 2021, to make or rescind a request for CR/NC.

Any student who is considering requesting a change to credit/no credit (CR/NC) is strongly encouraged to receive approval by an academic advisor, who will record notes in Jayhawk GPS, 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). - For fall 2020 term, courses that currently use letter grades will continue to use letter grades. However, students may individually request to receive or rescind a request for grades of credit/no credit through the form below. All requests for credit/no credit grading option, or to rescind the credit/no credit grading option must be submitted using the below forms no later than 11:59 p.m., April 30, 2021*. Students may select to change one or all of their classes in which they are enrolled (if changing more than one course the form will need to be submitted for each course individually). - Undergraduate students: Courses taken during the fall 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 fall 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. - Students will choose to receive either the letter grade recorded by the instructor OR a credit /no credit designation by the deadline, April 30, 2021. 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.
