Credit / No Credit Courses

When you enrol in a course, ACORN will give you the option to declare Credit / No Credit during the request period. This option will allow you to complete a course and have it count toward your degree credits that you need to graduate, but it will have no impact on your GPA. Instead of earning a numerical grade, a "CR" or "NCR" notation will appear in its place on your transcript. 

  • Degree students can request a maximum of 2 credits to be assessed as Credit / No Credit.
  • May only be used for breadth requirements and elective courses.
  • Program requirements and supervised study/independent study courses are not eligible.
  • To earn a credit or CR notation, you must have a final grade of at least 50%
  • Grades below 50% will not earn a grade, and a notation of NCR will appear on your transcript. 
  • Alumni may not complete courses using CR/NCR, even if they enrolled in the course before their graduation. For example, if you are enrolled in the Summer semester, and are graduating in June, and declare CR/NCR for the course, this designation will be void, and invalid at the time of completion. This designation will be removed and a percentage grade will appear on your transcript. 
  • The numerical/letter grade in courses taken on a CR/NCR basis will not appear on the transcript and will not be unofficially released or reported in any way. This grade will not be released to the student.
