Enrollment on a Satisfactory/No Credit Grading Basis
There are certain situations where you might want to change the grading basis for a course or courses. Most courses are automatically graded with a letter (A, B, C, etc.), but some courses qualify for what is known as S/NC (Satisfactory/No Credit) grading.
Earning an “S” grade (Satisfactory) in a course will earn you credit for the course. Earning an “NC” grade (No Credit) will not earn you credit for the course. Changing the grading basis to S/NC means that the S or NC grade will not be calculated in your GPA. It has neither a negative nor positive GPA impact. (Please note that some graduate schools/professional schools will treat an NC grade like an F.)

*Changing the grading of course from a letter grade to an S/NC grade is a PERMANENT decision. It cannot be undone, even if you gain new information after submitting the form.
