Fall 2021 Credit/No Credit
You are strongly encouraged to consult with your advisor before submitting a CR/NC request.
No CR/NC changes can be made outside the CR/NC period. This means that you cannot elect CR/NC or change from CR/NC back to the letter grade grading basis before or after the posted time on the academic calendar for the course (September 21 - October 4 for Fall 2021). Please keep in mind, short courses have different deadlines. Short course deadlines are found here.
You may elect the CR/NC option for at most one course per semester.
No course graded CR or NC can count toward the satisfaction of the requirements for an undergraduate major or toward the satisfaction of the requirements for a graduate degree or a graduate certificate, except in the School of Law.
Instructors are not notified of your choice to elect credit/no-credit for their course
- Undergraduates - CR is recorded for grades of C- and above; NC is recorded for grades of D+ and below.
- Graduates - CR is recorded for grades of C and above; NC is recorded for grades of C- and below.
The course you select for CR/NC cannot be in your major or minor (undergradute students) or cannot be used to fulfill any degree or certificate requirements (graduate students)
Courses taken as CR/NC do not count toward satisifaction of the Dean's Honor Roll requirements (minimum 3.5 GPA in 12 or more graded hours).
If you plan to apply to another KU school, contact that school to ask if they will accept CR/NC for the class.
PRE-LAW STUDENTS - The Credential Assembly Service (CAS) does its own cumulative GPA calculation and recognizes No Credit (NC) as an F. Be mindful of this when electing CR/NC as it will not factor in your KU GPA, but it will be factored in as an F by CAS when they send grades to prospective law schools. Contact the Pre-Law advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Center for questions.
PRE-GRADUATE/PRE-PROFESSIONAL STUDENTS - Students who plan to apply to graduate or professional schools should ask them how they treat CR/NC grades.
PRE-MEDICAL STUDENTS - Most medical schools recommend or require that core entry requirements, usually including biology, English, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and mathematics, be taken for letter grades, not CR/NC
