Fall 2023 grading
For information about the P/CR/NC grading system Fall 2023 term, please refer to the general Fall 2023 grading FAQ here. If you need further clarification below, you can contact the PSYC Advisors here.
IF I AM AN INTENDED OR DECLARED COGS MAJOR/MINOR, CAN I USE THE P/CR/NC FOR FALL 2023 PROGRAM AND DECLARATION REQUIREMENTS?
For the Fall 2023 term, courses required for your COGS program with a P (equivalent to C- or higher) will count towards declaration requirements, program requirements and total credits for a degree.
CR grades (equivalent to D) will also count for program requirements and total credits required for a degree, however it will not apply to most prerequisites requirements that have a grade requirement.
NC grades (equivalent to F or N) will not count towards credit nor program or declaration requirements. For the standard letter grade equivalent, please refer to the table in the general FAQ here.
HOW AND WHEN CAN I CHOOSE THE PASS (P), CREDIT (CR), NO CREDIT (NC), OR FAIL (F) FOR MY COURSE?
For the Fall 2023 term, after final grades are submitted, students will be allowed to either accept their final course grade, or opt for a “P” grade (Pass), provided they had earned a grade of “C-” or higher, CR (Credit) for a grade of D or “NC” (No credit) for a grade of F.
Students can change their grade to P/CR/NC or F in goSFU once final grades are released near the end of the term in December. The deadline to opt in is January 12, 2024; after this date, students will not be able to opt into the Fall 2023 grading system.
