Fall 2020 CR/NC Request

Attention Fresno State Students:

As mentioned in the email you received on Thursday, August 20, 2020, from Provost Dr. Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval and Acting VP of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management Dr. Carolyn Coon, Fresno State has extended their grading accommodation changes through Fall 2020. All undergraduate and graduate students will be able to change their grading basis, course-by-course except for the courses listed on the opt-out list.

For some students, it is important to understand that a CR/NC option can impact their long-term financial aid. Please review the FAQ before submitting the new grading option. Connecting to an advisor is critical throughout this process. If you have questions, or if you are unclear as to what impact CR/NC may have on future semesters, please reach out to your college advising center.

 

Students can choose on a course-by-course basis in the Student Center which courses they would like to convert to a CR/NC grade. Please see our “How To Change Your Grading Option” document for a step-by-step guide. 

 

The deadline to change your grading option for Fall 2020 is Wednesday, December 9th.  During the period between Wednesday, August 19th, and Wednesday, December 9th you may log back into your Student Center at any time to change your grading option to/from the CR/NC and Letter Grade options. 

 

Please note, after the December 9th deadline you must submit a Record Adjustment Petition to request to have your grading option changed.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT COURSES

Changing your grading option in your Student Center will automatically convert your letter grade to CR/NC at the end of the semester when faculty enter grades.  The conversions are shown in the table below:
