Effective Spring II 2021

    LaGuardia Community College has instituted the following policy, pending approval by the CUNY Board of Trustees

    “NC” Grade Policy effective Spring II 2021 for all students if they meet the following requirements/guidelines:

    1. Students will be able to select this option from August 12, 2021 to August 26, 2021.
    2. Students must continue attending the class, complete all assignments, and take the final examination.
    3. Only a failing grade (F) can convert to ‘NC’, with no credit awarded. An administrative failing grade of WU or FIN do not qualify under this policy.
    4. The option to take a course as “NC” will be offered to all students for a maximum of 4 credits, or 1 class. Non-credit bearing remedial classes will not be included in the “NC” option.
    5. Students with up to two “NC” already in their transcripts will not be able to use this option.
    6. Faculty will submit their grades by following the LAGCC standard grade assignment chart. “NC” grade will be assigned administratively by the Registrar to qualified students who opt in by August 12, 2021 to August 26, 2021. No special action will be needed by faculty.

    Most courses will be eligible for a No Credit option.

    All clinical phase courses in Nursing, OTA, PTA, Rad Tech and Vet Tech (course prefixes: SCR, SCL, SCT, SCO, SCX, SCV) are excluded.

    Note: SCV101 is not in clinical phase and thus not excluded.

    Please note that the “NC” grade may impact student’s Financial Aid and will not be calculated in the students’ Grade Point Average at LAGCC. However, when the student transfers to another institution, the “NC” grade may be treated as an “F” grade.
