We will have BRIEF remarks from various areas at the college then I’ll pose some questions that were sent before the session. Then we will take questions.

When a student is asking how will the policy effect their fin aid, how should we be advising them?

The Registrar’s page has some information, please see the page and refer to it when you need to: https://www.bmcc.cuny.edu/registrar/policies-and-procedures/fall-2020-flexible-grading-policy-cr-nc/

Students should consult with Financial Aid at finaid@bmcc.cuny.edu prior to choosing Credit/No Credit.

How many classes can they opt for a NC/C?
Toria Garner
24:44
Any student that submitted a NC form on file prior to receiving this information can they revoke their form and explore the NC/C opportunity?

Did not see a WU grade. Do they have NC option or not since this is not a earned grade, but does turn to an F later.
Alam Mohammad
27:26
WU, W, WN do not qualify for NC

Is there a way to calculate cumulative GPA considering the CR/NC policy?
Mayulie Luciano, CUNY EDGE
30:07
I ask because students would like to compare GPA before deciding on a CR grade
Carei Thomas
30:34
Hi Mayulie,
Mayulie Luciano, CUNY EDGE

Hi Carei !
Carei Thomas
31:04
are you referring to a total cumulative undergraduate GPA? In the cases where a student has transferred from another college?
Carei Thomas
31:29
or are you just asking if the student opts for a NC
Carei Thomas
31:54
how the NC would calculate in the BMCC GPA if they transfer?

Under what conditions does accepting a completion grade of an F rather than changing it to a NC work to the students’ advantage?
Jim Berg
40:22
there is a question from earlier: is the CR reversible?
Chris Stein
42:03
It also depends on their major and whether the transferability of the course is important.
Joanne Jaquez
42:19
My audio glitched. I want to confirm are NC grades counted as attempted credits for financial aid?
Lalitha Jayant
46:30
one of my students never attended my synchronous class and never took any exams but did all the assignments. Should I give him a Wu or F
Jim Berg
47:26
When did he last complete an assignment?
Lalitha Jayant
48:09
last week
Lalitha Jayant
48:35
before dec 13
Jim Berg
49:47
I guess it depends on whether you think he “completed” the class. If yes, then an F. If no, then a WU. Does that make sense.
Vincent (Tzu-Wen) Cheng
51:10
Are students who withdrew before 11/4 and after 11/4 with a grade of W treated the same? If not, how are they treated differently?

Pardon me - I had to step away - “dismissal”? Do you refer to explosion?
Jim Berg

Expulsion, Bethany?

OOPS! Yes. :-)
