Electing the Credit/No Credit Option
To elect the credit/no credit option, you need to fill out the form available in the Registrar's Office (Bamberger Hall, second floor) and leave it in our office. Because students have nine weeks to make this decision, there are no exceptions to the deadline and forms will not be accepted past the deadline. Please check the Academic Calendar to determine the Credit/No Credit deadline.
Credit/No Credit Option
Students may elect to take a maximum of two courses that would normally require letter grades on a credit/no credit basis. Courses taken in this way may not be applied to majors or minors. Students who declare a major or minor in a given subject after having taken a course in that subject on a credit/no credit basis may be required by their major or minor department to retake the course for a letter grade.
There are no limits on Westminster courses that are offered exclusively on a credit/no credit basis, and, when they occur in majors or minors, they may be used in those majors or minors.
Students who take courses credit/no credit must perform work at the level of C- or higher to receive credit. Grades of credit/no credit are not included in GPA calculations.
