Credit/No Credit grade flexibility continues through the Spring 2021 semester

The credit/no credit (CR/NC) deadline is extended to Friday, May 7, plus:

  • the campus has lifted the restriction on the number of optional grade mode courses you can take for credit/no-credit this semester;
  • courses taken CR/NC during Spring 2021 will not count towards the maximum number of CR/NC units a student may apply to the degree
  • most major courses can be taken credit/no credit this semester (work closely with your advisor)

The campus will return to normal grading policies effective with the Summer 2021 term.

What is the difference between graduation and commencement?

Graduation takes place upon verification that all degree requirements have been met.

Commencement is a ceremony that celebrates the completion of a degree. Walking in the commencement ceremony does not imply that you have officially graduated.
