  • April 24 - Deadline for submission of CR/NC form

    April 24 - Deadline for submission of the individual course withdrawal form

  • Incompletes should only be used when, near the end of the semester, a small number of assignments or the final exam are not completed. You should talk to your instructor to see if this option makes sense. Incompletes should be submitted by your instructor before the final exam period.


    For the Spring 2020 semester, students will be allowed to take CORE 107 CR/NC. If you earn CR for CORE 107, you will have completed the requirement.

    Students may withdraw from CORE 107 during Spring 2020, but should do so only when necessary. Students who withdraw must fulfill the requirement in the next enrolled semester by successfully completing a course that satisfies the Bibliographic Research and Writing requirement and submitting a course substitution request. Students may not apply to participate in an Overseas or Off-campus Program until they have satisfied the CORE 107 requirement.


    Varsity athletic eligibility would only be impacted if your grades this semester put you on academic standing of probation or suspension.


    In most cases, taking one or more courses CR/NC in Spring 2020 will not impact your eligibility to receive financial aid in the future unless you are currently on financial aid satisfactory academic progress (SAP) warning or are receiving financial aid on an approved petition/academic plan which requires you to raise your cumulative GPA above 2.0. In these cases, you may find raising your cumulative GPA might take more time since CR/NC courses will not be calculated in the cumulative GPA. If you are currently on SAP warning or have GPA benchmarks you must meet to maintain your financial aid and wish to take courses CR/NC, please reach out to the Office of Financial Aid to explore how this may impact your eligibility for future financial aid.

    CR/NC grades might impact outside scholarships or other programs such as good driver discounts; you should contact those programs to inquire about their policies.

  • CR/NC grades are not part of the calculation of your GPA. If you have more than 12 graded credits this semester, your academic standing will be assessed as usual. If you decide to take all of your classes CR/NC, then whatever standing you were on before will continue. Your situation may be more complicated if you have a mix of graded and CR/NC credits with less than 12 graded credits. In that case, you should consult with your advisor to make sure that you don’t progress to a more severe academic standing.


    Complete the CR/NC form through “Step 1” and email it to your course instructor using your lclark email account. The instructor will send the completed form to the registrar’s office and will cc: you.

  • In order to give students increased flexibility, the College has enacted the following changes for the Spring 2020 academic semester:


    • Students may choose a CR/NC option for any of their classes this semester.
    • Courses taken CR/NC in SP2020 may apply to General Education requirements and to Major requirements.
    • Students are given until Friday, April 24 to decide whether to change their grade option to CR/NC.
