Credit/No Credit update
On Friday, March 27, the Executive Committee of the Senate (ECS) discussed a recommendation from the Student Senate to allow students to also make CR/NC requests after the semester has ended and final grades are posted. Several other universities have adopted this temporary policy, and ECS and the Provost reached a consensus to also move in this direction. GVSU is implementing this temporary policy in the following way: May 1-15 will be a third window for students to request changing a course grade to CR/NC, after final grades are posted on April 30.
