Credit/No Credit

Spring 2020 through Spring 2021: 

During Spring 2020, Summer 2020, Fall 2020, Winter 2021 and Spring 2021 you will be able to select any GE courses for Credit/No Credit grading; you are encouraged to speak with us before selecting Credit/No Credit grading for GE courses. 

Each department has its own policy on whether or not Credit/No Credit (CR/NC) courses may be used to fulfill major or support courses. Please refer to your major Credit/No Credit policies.

Note to students changing majors: Per the Office of the Registrar, if you change your major from one that allowed CR/NC in one of these quarters to a major that did not expand CR/NC allowances in that quarter, then you will be subject to the policies and rules governing the new major. That would mean that a course previously taken CR/NC that now violates the new major's rules, would be converted by the Office of the Registrar to the letter grade earned.


College of Engineering Policy (pre-COVID):

Students in the College of Engineering are not allowed to take any major or support courses credit/no credit.

Major and support courses must be taken for a letter grade. Students who are unsure if a course is a major or support course should check their curriculum sheet where the courses are clearly divided between these four areas: major, support, general education, electives. 

Engineering students are allowed to take one General Education course (4 units) credit/no credit.

To learn more, refer to the university-wide credit/no credit policy.
