Grades Frequently Asked Question
What are the UCSC Extension grade options?
A letter grade is the default, but you do have options.
The Credit/No Credit option is available to students in good academic standing. Requests for Credit/No Credit must be submitted to Student Services via ExtensionGrades@ucsc.edu by the last day of the course.
Please note that only letter grades of C- or higher can be applied to a certificate. Most employer or government-sponsored workforce development study programs require a minimum grade of B or higher.
