Spring 2021 CR/NC Deadline

This is a reminder that the deadline to change a graded class to CR/NC for the Spring 2021 term is this Friday, June 4th. Forms to request a change to CR/NC can be found at https://registrar.kzoo.edu/forms/formsforstudents/

For the 2020-2021 school year all students may elect to take at most TWO letter-graded courses on campus as CR/NC (Credit/No Credit) in each of the FALL 2020, WINTER 2021, or SPRING 2021 terms, with only SECOND one of the two counting against the maximum of 4 courses over their college career (not including Spring 2020).

Some additional guidelines for consideration when deciding whether to take a course CR/NC:

. Student must be in good academic standing.
. Student may elect this option for at most one course in any one department.
. Once declared a Credit\No Credit course, the course cannot be converted back to a letter-graded course.
. Declaration of a course as Credit\No Credit makes the student ineligible for the Dean’s List consideration for that quarter.
. Many graduate schools and professional institutions may not accept Credit\No Credit graded coursework in subjects related to an intended program of study.
. Student may retake a CR/NC option for a letter grade.
. Letter-graded courses taken as CR/NC may not count towards any major, minor, or concentration (including required cognates), nor may they satisfy prerequisites for those course sequences that require a “C- or better,” without special permission from the department.
. The course will not satisfy the last course in the language requirement (103 or 201) or any of the Shared Passages Seminar requirements.

Friday, March 12th, is the last day to change a course to CR/NC for the Winter 2021 term.

As a reminder, the CR/NC policy to the 2020-201 school year is: All students may elect to take at most TWO letter-graded courses on campus as CR/NC (Credit/No Credit) in each of the FALL 2020, WINTER 2021, or SPRING 2021 terms, with only SECOND one of the two counting against the maximum of 4 courses over their college career (not including Spring 2020).

  • Students may elect this option for at most one course in any one department. The CR/NC grade option is not available for Shared Passage Seminars or for the final course taken to satisfy the language requirement (i.e. 103 or 201).
    • Letter-graded courses taken as CR/NC may not count towards any major, minor, or concentration (including required cognates), nor may they satisfy prerequisites for those course sequences that require a “C- or better,” without special permission from the department.
    • Students who take a course for a CR/NC grade may retake the course for a letter grade.
    • Students may choose to apply the CR/NC option at any time during the course up to Midnight EST Friday 10th week. The professor will assign a letter grade as per normal procedure, but the Registrar’s Office will convert passing grades to CR and will convert an F to NC. (Professors will not be formally notified if students have taken this option.)
