Spring 2020 archived information

Opting in for a CR/NC grade for a course you took in Spring 2020 is done by you (the student) on CUNYfirst. You can opt in for CR/NC for any course or all courses you have taken this semester.

  • Meeting with an advisor first is not required, but recommended if you have questions that aren't answered in the FAQ.

  • To explore the implications of choosing CR/NC on your GPA, use the Degreeworks GPA calculator (login to Degreeworks at http://degreeworks.cuny.edu/).

  • A CR grade has no impact on financial aid for spring or future awards.

  • An NC grade will have no impact on spring 2020 financial aid. However, next year you are expected to catch up on your credit accumulation for future awards, so plan accordingly. Summer 2020 is a great time to catch up!
