• NO CREDIT POLICY

    Effective as of Fall I 2021


    Permanent No Credit grade policy:

    1. Students must continue attending the class, complete all assignments, and take the final examination. Only an earned failing grade (F) can convert to NC grade, with no credit awarded. No other grades are eligible under this policy.
    2. The option to take a course as NC grade will be offered to all students for a maximum of 4 credits, or 1 class. Non-credit bearing remedial classes will not be included in the NC grade option. 
    3. Matriculated students with an NC grade already in their transcripts will not be able to use this option.
    4. The NC credits are counted towards enrollment but not counted towards students’ academic progress.
    5. An NC grade from College Now or Early College Initiative programs prior to matriculation at the college does not count towards the NC cap as outlined in item 4 above.
    6. Faculty will submit their grades following the LAGCC standard grade assignment chart. NC grade will be assigned administratively by the Registrar. Students must opt-in within 14 days after the grade submission deadline for each session. No special action will be needed by faculty. Deadlines are published in the Academic Calendar.

    Most courses will be eligible for a NC grade option.

    All clinical phase courses in Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiologic Technology and Veterinary Technology (course prefixes: SCR, SCL, SCT, SCO, SCX, SCV) are excluded.

    Note: SCV101 is not in the clinical phase and thus not excluded.

    Please note that the NC will not impact student’s financial aid and will not be calculated in the student’s Grade Point Average at LaGuardia. However, when the student transfers to another institution, the NC grade may be treated as an F grade. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with financial aid and academic advisors.
