Do colleges prefer to see traditional letter grades for this spring semester 2020, or are credit/no credit marks equally acceptable?

Many of you are debating the options of traditional letter grades vs. credit/no credit (C/NC) grades for this spring semester. The general consensus from colleges is that they will evaluate each student in the context of their individual school environment when it comes to grades, and that students should select which option is best for them given their particular circumstances during the pandemic. Overall, there is not a strong preference for either option. However, if you choose C/NC, most private universities will ask for your reasons behind your decision. Acceptable reasons would be things like insufficient technological resources available to you, or other significant impediments to your learning in an online format. If such obstacles don’t exist, a choice of C/NC may raise a red flag.


Other considerations before you make your choice:

  • Look closely at your current 4th quarter grades to see where you stand. You can only make one choice for all of your classes (all letter grades or all C/NC).

  • C/NC marks will not be included in the GPA calculation. If your academic performance this semester is better than your current cumulative GPA, the letter grades will raise your overall GPA. If it’s worse, it will lower your GPA. Remember, GPA is the first thing that colleges consider in their evaluation of your application.

  • If you are taking approved AP or Honors courses that would normally result in an extra grade point boost, you will not receive the additional grade point if you choose C/NC. But those courses will still be counted in college’s overall evaluation of your academic record (that is, that you took that AP or Honors course vs. a regular course).

  • If you are applying to highly selective universities, and you are earning high grades, they may look favorably on seeing your letter grades this semester.
