Grade Mode Changes - Traditional & Credit/No-Credit
Students continue to seek relief from poor class performance late in the term by requesting that instructors change the student's grade mode for the class from traditional mode to Credit/No-credit mode well after the 15th day of the term. A number of faculty members have reported the behavior and shared that they were concerned about the fairness of allowing a student the option to change well after published deadlines, while other students might not be afforded the same option. In order for a student to have the option to elect Credit/No-credit grading, the course must be set up in Banner with that grading option, and the course syllabus should reflect that Credit/No-credit grading is available.
If the course is not set up with Credit/No-credit, and the syllabus does not provide students the Credit/Non-credit option, we've always strictly interpreted the policy and will not process the student's request to change grade mode.
Additional information regarding Credit/Non-Credit grading is available in the catalog.
