Credit Only

Under special circumstances and only with advisor approval, courses may be taken on a credit/no credit (CR/NC) basis. Credit will be awarded only if the work is equivalent to a grade of B or better. No more than 10 semester hours of coursework taken on a CR/NC basis may be applied toward a graduate degree or licensure. This limitation does not apply to required coursework that is offered only on a CR/NC basis.

Students who wish to request a course be taken on a (CR/NC) basis need to complete the Credit-No Credit Request Form and submit it to their advisor. If approved, the advisor will submit the approved form to the Registrar’s Office. Approved forms must be received by the Registrar’s Office within the first 10 days of the semester.
