Credit/No Credit Flexible Grading Policy


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent move to distance learning, CUNY has implemented the Credit/No Credit Flexible Grading Policy, which was designed to help you continue your academic progress despite the difficulties you have faced in recent months.

This policy provides you with the option of receiving a letter grade or a grade of Credit/No Credit. The decision of whether to choose a letter grade or Credit/No Credit for a course is a decision you must make. To that end, read over the policy and the FAQs below which will help you to decide. You must opt-in to receive Credit/No Credit within 20 business days of receiving your letter grade. If you do not take action to opt-in, your letter grade will remain.

Credit/No Credit Policy (Special COVID-19 Flexible Grading Policy) passed by CUNY Board of Trustees. It supersedes all local policies.
