Dropping courses, CR/NCR and GPA

While you’re planning out the next couple of weeks, one date to keep in mind is November 7th: it’s the last day to drop F section code courses from your academic record without it affecting your GPA. After this deadline a mark is recorded for each course, whether course work is completed or not (a 0/zero is assigned for incomplete work), and calculated into the GPA.

Nov. 7th is also the last day to add or remove a CR/NCR option* for F section code courses. Degree students in the Faculty of Arts & Science may select up to 2.0 full-course equivalents of their degree credits to be assessed on a Credit/No Credit basis. This option is available for Arts & Science students taking courses offered by the St. George Faculty of Arts & Science. Students may add or remove the CR/NCR option on Acorn. See the Faculty’s website for full details of the CR/NCR option.

To achieve a status of CR (Credit), a student must achieve a final mark of at least 50%. Marks below that will be assessed as NCR (No Credit). Courses with a final status of CR will count as degree credits but will have no effect on the student’s GPA. They will count as Distribution Requirements, Breadth Requirements, and degree credits, but cannot be used to satisfy subject program requirements unless explicitly permitted by the program, nor satisfy the 12.0 different FCE requirement between programs for your degree.

Please note: first-year seminars, including Vic One, are not eligible for CR/NCR.

Courses with a final status of NCR will not count as degree credits but will not count as failures, and will also not be included in the GPA calculation.

Students may exercise this option to a total of 2.0 full-course equivalents within the total number of credits required for a degree. The choice is not restricted as to year or level of course.
