New for Spring Semester: Credit-No Credit Grade Reporting Option
March 1, 2023
In an effort to support students this semester, revised Credit-No Credit (CR-NC) grade reporting options are being put in place for spring semester 2023 only. Guidelines for undergraduates and graduate students are outlined below. After reading the information provided on the Credit-No Credit page, please schedule an appointment with your academic advisor at some point before the end of the semester to ensure you are making the most informed choices for your individual situation.
MSU will return to the CR-NC policy listed in the Academic Programs Catalog effective summer 2023.
Undergraduate Student Guidelines:
- Review your posted grades: Starting May 10, 2023
- Deadline to select CR-NC option: 11:59 p.m. (EST) on May 17, 2023
- Eligibility: All courses, except those that are being audited, are already being taken for Pass/No Grade (P/N), are subject to external accreditation agencies that require a numeric grade (which includes Construction Management and Urban and Regional Planning), or are taken by students enrolled in dual-degree programs
- IMPORTANT: Check with your academic advisor before choosing the CR-NC option to ensure your decision aligns with your academic goals.
Graduate Student Guidelines:
- Availability: CR-NC grade reporting options are generally available to graduate students for spring semester 2023.
- Eligibility: Courses already being taken for Pass/No Grade (P/N) are not open to the CR-NC option. Graduate students in programs with licensure and accreditation standards need to consult with their program and departments/schools about what, if any, options are available to them.
- IMPORTANT: Check with your advisors and graduate program directors before choosing the CR-NC option to ensure your decision aligns with your academic goals.
Be sure to check the FAQs on the Credit-No Credit page before scheduling an appointment with your academic advisor. And remember that you have until the end of the semester to make your decisions.
We hope this grade reporting option supports you in your continued studies this semester.
