Spring 2020 Credit/No Credit Options

In response to the disruption caused by COVID-19, Academic Senate has passed a resolution providing all students with the choice to change their individual course grading basis from a Letter Grade (A-F) basis to a Credit (CR)/No Credit (NC) basis for Spring 2020 courses. Courses initially offered as CR/NC will remain CR/NC.

Students should weigh this option carefully and should consult with an academic advisor, major advisor, and financial aid counselors if they are receiving aid. Please review the FAQ before submitting requests to change your grading basis.

How to opt-in for CR/NC “Credit/No Credit” for a class

There are two options available to students:

Option 1:

A student can update their grading basis to CR/NC in CI Records beginning April 21, 2020 and ending May 15, 2020. No faculty approval will be required and students can choose on a course-by-course basis which courses they would like to convert to a CR/NC grading basis.

Note: If you receive an error using the self-service option (e.g. exceeding maximum session unit limit), please use the Spring 2020 Grading Basis Change Form under Option 2 and send it to registrar@csuci.edu.

Option 2:

Students may also request a change of grading basis from letter grade (A-F) to Credit/No Credit (CR/NC) after the self-service deadline of May 15 through June 9, 2020. Additionally, if a student changed their grading basis from letter grade to CR/NC during the self-service period (April 21st – May 15th), they may use the Spring 2020 Grading Basis Change Form to request to revert back to a letter grade. To make this request, complete the form below and e-mail it to registrar@csuci.edu. Students must send from their university e-mail address.
