COVID-19 GE FAQs

How can I change my course grading option to credit/no credit for my general education course(s)?

Is there a limit on how many general education courses I can take for credit/no credit?

  • A maximum of six semester units of optional credit/no-credit course work can be used in meeting general education requirements.

 

Can an optional credit/no credit course fulfill a general education requirement?

  • If I student earns the grade of “CR” for a general education course, the requirement will be fulfilled, so long as the student has not surpassed the maximum of six semester units of optional credit/no credit for general education courses. A grade of “CR” will be awarded for work of “C” (2.0) or better; the grade “NC” will be awarded for the grade of “C-” (1.7) or below.

 

How does optional credit/no credit grading impact A1, A2, B4, or GWAR courses?

  • A1, A2, A3, B4 and GWAR courses require a grade of C- or above to fulfill the requirement. If a student earns a C- for the course, they will fulfill the course requirement. However, if a student earns a C- and has opted for credit/no credit, the student will receive the grade “NC” and course requirement will not be fulfilled.

 

How does optional credit/no credit grading impact other general education courses?

  • All other general education courses require a grade of D- or above. If a student earns a D- for the course, they will fulfill the course requirement.  If a student earns a D- and has opted for credit/no credit, the student will receive the grade “NC” and course requirement will not be fulfilled.
