Credit/No-Credit and Drop Deadlines

In response to advice and input from students and approval by the Academic Senate, emergency academic policy modifications have been put in place for the Fall 2020 semester as outlined in a recent massmail from Provost Cangellaris. Additionally, the Graduate College sent a follow-up communication with information specifically for graduate students, including drop deadlines and procedures for requesting Credit/No-Credit. We encourage students who may be considering these options to have a discussion with your academic advisor to understand the best options available to you.
