Policies Governing Free Electives

Free Electives, by definition, fulfill neither General Education Requirements nor the Major Requirement, but are counted toward the total number of course units required for graduation. Students should consult with their pre-major advisor to discuss how their Free Electives fit into their overall curriculum, and how many they are likely to need.

A maximum of 8 c.u. of Free Electives may be taken on a pass/fail basis, though normally it is not recommended that students take that many pass/fail courses (two or three is more typical).
