CSUMB allows credit/no credit system

To assist students on their educational pathway during the unforeseen breakout of COVID-19, the California State University, Monterey Bay provost announced an alternative grade mode selection for the Fall 2020 semester.

The provost sent an email to all students on Dec. 2 declaring students now have the option to change the typical letter grade system to a credit or no credit if they desire. This matches last semester’s grading mode, offering students worried about their GPA dropping points the opportunity to opt in for credit or no credit, which won’t tarnish their transcript as much as a low letter grade.

“CSUMB faculty and staff support you and are here to help you succeed,” read the email. The email also said the provost “listened to [student] concerns” and decided it was in the best interest to bring the grade system back.  

A credit grade replaces an undergraduate A+ through C- or a graduate A+ through B- and a no credit grade replaces an undergraduate D+ through F or graduate C+ through F. 

Students must change their grade mode on OASIS from Dec. 8 to 18 in order to have courses graded as credit or no credit.
