The Spring 2020 COVID-19 Flexible Grading Policy and advising students
May 13, 2020
On March 30, 2020, the Board of Trustees of CUNY approved a special COVID-19 Flexible Grading Policy for the Spring 2020 Semester. This policy applies to all CUNY students who are enrolled in credit bearing courses for the Spring 2020 semester, including undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral courses (with the exceptions of the CUNY School of Law and the CUNY school of Medicine, regardless of their graduation status). Courses in all Spring 2020 sessions, including 8-week and mini sessions, are included in the CR/NC policy. The policy applies to all courses, including capstone, internship, and lab courses except dissertation continuation courses.
If considering the CR/NC Option, students should seek guidance from the Office of Financial Aid Services to discuss implications on meeting financial aid requirements (for example, some scholarships may require minimum number of credits each semester to be taken for a letter grade).
