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

Pass/No Credit (P/NC) Grading Option

Students may select one course each semester and one course in Winter and Summer Session for grading under the P/NC option. (Note: Summer Sessions 1 and 2 are considered a single semester.) No more than 21 credits of P/NC may be applied toward the baccalaureate degree. Courses in which students only earn a P or NC are not included in the 21 attempted P/NC credit limit. 

Instructors cannot submit a grade of P or NC except in courses where these grades are the only legal grade. All earned passing grades (A+ to D) will be converted to P; F grades will be converted to NC, which will not affect your GPA.

The NC grade is assigned only when an F is submitted by the instructor. If a student does not attend the course or if, as a result of excessive absences, the instructor has no basis on which to submit a final grade, a grade of WU may be assigned. The grade of WU will not be converted to an NC. Only an earned failure is converted to an NC. WU and WF grades in courses taken under the P/NC option remain on the student's record. Since only an earned failure is converted to an NC, students must continue to attend class, complete all assignments, and take the final exam after selecting a P/NC grading option.

Students should note the following:

·         Grades of P will not be applied to general college honor, which requires a student to complete at least 45 credits with letter grades at Queens College.

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

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