How Temple’s Credit/No Credit Grading System Works

Temple University announced in early November, the re-introduction of the credit/no credit grading option for the Fall 2020 semester.

The university provided this option to students who abruptly had their semester moved online when the pandemic began in the Spring 2020 semester.

Students can only choose one class to be graded in this format.

If you are already in a semester-long credit/no credit course, you have the option of choosing a different course to be graded.

Instructors will be able to assign any of the following grades to undergrad students if they choose to opt-in:

• CR = Credit, equivalent to C- or above
• CD = Credit with D, equivalent to D-, D, D+
• NC = No Credit, equivalent to F

The grades above will NOT affect a student’s GPA.

Program requirements (such as major-required courses and Gen-Eds) can only be satisfied with the grade of CR.

To change the grading mode of one of your courses, visit the “My Courses” tab in TUPortal and select review your courses.

For the Fall 2020 semester, students have until Monday, December 7 at 11:59 p.m. to make a decision on grading. Some classes may have an earlier deadline, so double check TUPortal.

If you have any more questions or concerns, Temple directs students to contact an advisor or email cv19grades[@]
