In deciding whether to receive a letter grade or to change your status to credit/no credit (C/NC) for any of your courses, please be aware that choosing credit/no credit may impact:

  • Financial aid
  • Requirements within your major
  • And maybe even acceptance to graduate programs.

In other words, don’t take this decision lightly.

Below are some details of how changing to credit/no credit may impact your education within the Woodbury School of Business:

  • IM 2010, IM 2600, and MKTG 2200 require a B- or higher, a CR (credit) grade will not count.
  • MGMT 2240 requires a C- or CR in MATH 1050; a CR in MATH 1050 will get you into MGMT 2240.
  • Economics majors must have a B or higher in either MATH 1100 or MGMT 2240; CR will not count.
  • Accounting majors must have a B- or higher in ACC 2010, ACC 2020, and IM 2600; CR will not count.
  • Graduation GPA: How is your GPA? To matriculate in and graduate from the Woodbury School of Business, a GPA of 2.5 or higher is required. CR grades will not be calculated into the GPA. While CR/NC grades don't hurt your GPA, they don't help it either. If you were banking on a GPA bump, that won't happen with CR/NC grading.

(CR) Credit/ (NC) No Credit Guide for Masters Students:

UVU Policy 524 requires students to earn a C grade or higher in order for a course to meet graduation requirements for a master’s degree or graduate certificate.  Graduate faculty have been instructed only to award a CR grade if the student has earned the equivalent of a C grade or higher for the course.  Please keep this in mind as you consider your CR/NC option.


Please contact WSB ACADEMIC ADVISING if you have any further questions.
