Spring 2024 – JD Credit/Fail Option

Posted on

Starting 10:00am NY time on January 26th, the Spring 2024 JD Credit/Fail option will be available for 2L and 3L students for classes designated with the Credit/Fail option. JD students may elect this option on the designated classes or change their election via Albert until Tuesday, April 23 at 11:59 pm.


2L and 3L students may elect to register for a total of two non-required courses on a Credit/Fail basis provided the faculty member teaching the course has listed the course as being open to such registration.

  • Ungraded credits for student journals, Moot Court, Teaching Assistantships, and Research Assistantships are not counted toward this limit.
  • Classes that only offer a CR grade are not counted toward the two-course limit.
  • The class must be listed open to such registration.
  • Students may not, under any circumstances, change an election to take or not to take a course Credit/Fail after the time for making such an election has expired.
  • Visiting students will only be allowed to register for the Credit/Fail grading option provided prior approval of their home school is submitted to the Office of Academic Services.
