Choosing Credit/No Credit Option for Grades

This article contains information on how CSUF students can choose a credit/no credit (C/NC) option for their grades in the Student Center.

NOTE that students will not see their grades in the usual location in their Student Center until after June 1st. For now, students need to use the instructions below to access the page showing their grades.

Check Before You Choose - Read This First

For the spring 2020 term, students can choose either their final letter grade or the Credit/No Credit (CR/NC) equivalent grade.

Before you choose, you need to be aware of a number of consequences; some may or may not be beneficial to you. Choosing CR/NC grades can have numerous effects, based on your student status (veteran, financial aid recipient, academic probation, repeating a course to improve a prior grade, student-athletes, pre-licensure or credential programs, post-baccalaureate programs to prepare for a professional school, etc.)

BEFORE YOU PROCEED

  • Have you thoroughly read the Student FAQs?
  • Have you reached out to your advisor or various offices (Veterans Resource Center, Financial Aid, Academic Advisement Center, EOP Office, etc.) if you have more questions after reading the FAQs?
