Courses taken on a Credit/No Credit basis

Courses taken on a Credit / No Credit basis (up to four courses):  In order to encourage students to explore the richness and variety of Duke Kunshan University’s curricular offerings without worrying unduly about grades, students may elect to take up to one course each semester and summer session on a Credit/No Credit basis. No more than four courses (either two-credit or four-credit courses) towards the 136 credits requirement may be taken on a Credit/No Credit basis. Students are especially encouraged to make use of the CR/NC option in their first year, to take courses they feel might lay outside of their areas of perceived interest, strength, or expertise.
