Pass/No Credit (P/NC) Grading Option ​​​​​​​​

Pass/No Credit (P/NC) Grading Option

·         You can P/NC only one course per semester and only one for the summer (even if you enrolled in multiple summer sessions).

·         Only an earned failure is converted to an NC, thus you must continue to attend class, complete all assignments, and take the final exam after selecting a P/NC grading option.

·         No more than 21 credits of P/NC may be applied toward the baccalaureate.

·         If you earn a passing grade of A+ to D, you will receive a P grade and the credit for the course. If you earn a failing grade (F), you will be assigned a grade of NC (no credit), which will not affect your GPA. A grade of WU will not be converted to an NC.

·         Most graduate schools consider a P as a D grade. 

·         You should consult an advisor before selecting P/NC.

What courses/requirements cannot be P/NC’d (for students under CUNY Pathways General Education who matriculated to QC in Fall 2015 or later)?

·         Courses, including prerequisites, in a student’s major, major concentration, and minor (unless with departmental permission).

·         Courses used to satisfy Required Core, Flexible Core, and College Option requirements. Note: You may still P/NC core courses; however, a P grade cannot be used to satisfy a core requirement.

·         All writing-intensive units.

·         Graduate and CESL courses.
