UNI NEWS SERVICES - The University of Northern Iowa is taking a number of steps to ensure students, including incoming transfer students, graduate on time in the wake of widespread campus changes due to the coronavirus.
UNI is acting early to remove a significant barrier for future students and will now accept all Credit/No Credit courses taken during Spring 2020 as future transfer credits from all other colleges and universities.
Under normal rules, Credit/No Credit classes cannot be counted towards requirements in majors, minors or Liberal Arts Core (LAC). With the announced switch, undergraduate students choosing to change a class from graded to Credit/No Credit during Spring 2020 may count those classes toward requirements in their majors or LAC requirements. The advantage for students is that credit-only classes do not impact GPA calculations.
To assist students through these tumultuous times, UNI is also extending the deadline to change a class from graded to Credit/No Credit through the last day of finals on May 8. UNI is also extending the deadline for students to drop a class without a grade until the end of finals on May 8.
