GRADES: Credit/No Credit Option (CR/NC)
The Credit / No Credit system is based on the non-letter grades of CR (A, B, C) and NC (D, F).
Several rules apply:
- You may file for the CR/NC grading option four times during completion of your undergraduate degree. This includes repeated courses.
- The CR/NC grading option is not available to you if you are on probation.
- If you earn a course grade of D, you may choose to receive either the D or the NC.
you file for the CR/NC option for a course that does not permit that
option, you will receive either a grade of C or a grade of F.
- The Hunter Senate may approve a department's request to prohibit the CR/NC option for major courses.
Selecting the CR/NC grading option may have negative academic and/or financial consequences. Other colleges, graduate and professional programs, services, and employers may look with disfavor upon the CR/NC grading option and may convert CR to a grade of C and NC to a grade of F for their purposes. In addition, eligibility for some financial aid grants and scholarships may be affected. Speak with your academic and/or financial aid advisor before selecting the CR/NC grading option.
