The deadline to elect the Credit/No Credit grade mode has been extended to 11:59 p.m. CST Jan. 5, 2021.
A link to the Fall 2020 Credit/No Credit form will be located HERE starting Dec. 19th
You can find more information about the Credit/No Credit Policy Modification on the Provost web page.
Just a few highlights we want you to be aware of:
There is no limit to the number of courses for Fall 2020 that can be taken CR/NC.
Courses taken for CR/NC in Fall 2020 will count toward completion of major, minor, and general education requirements.
Grades of C- or above are required to earn credit.
If CR/NC is elected, grades of D+, D, D-, and F for courses do not earn credit.
CR/NC does not impact cumulative Illinois GPA.
Social Work students do not need to meet with an advisor to elect CR/NC.
Students must complete the Registrar’s form and submit themselves.
Students cannot do Grade Replacement for courses taken for CR/NC.
Electing CR/NC will rescind previous grade replacement requests.
For example, if a student has failed Math 220 last semester, is retaking the course this semester for GR...if they elect CR/NC, the GR is rescinded.
Students on academic probation may elect CR/NC for any course.
Students may elect CR/NC for POT A courses.
Although NC grades will not impact GPA, they may impact academic standing. For instance, students earning multiple NC grades may be placed on academic probation after Fall 2020 or considered for dismissal.
Earning CR for courses will most likely NOT remove a student from academic probation.
