Examples of How to Interpret Total Credits on Student's Course Request Form

Example 1:

First Example of how to interpret credits

PSY 12000 3
PSY 10000 1
COM 11400 or ENGL 10600 3 or 4
CSR 10300 or ENTM 22810 3 or 4
CHM 11100 or BIOL 11000 or BIOL 20300 3 or 4
AMST 10100 or EAPS 12000 or EAPS 12500         3
TOTALS 16-19

Total Credits for Example 1

Because 19 is more than 18 credits, then a maximum credit override would be requested. It is the advisor's choice whether to approve the maximum credit override or not.

Example 2:

Second Example on how to interpret credits

POL 13000 3
PSY 12000 3
COM 11400 or ENGL 10600 3 or 4
MA 16010 3
GER 10100 3
ENTM 22810 or SOC 10000 or ANTH 20500     3 or 4
TOTALS 16-20

If student gets PSY 10000, 12000, COM 11400, MA 16010, GER 10100 and POL 13000 = equals 16 credits
If student gets PSY 10000, 12000, COM 11400, MA 16010, GER 10100, ANTH 20500 and POL 13000    = equals 19 credits
If student gets PSY 10000, 12000, COM 11400, MA 16010, GER 10100, and ENTM 22810 = equals 17 credits
If student gets PSY 10000, 12000, ENGL 10600, MA 16010, GER 10100 and ENTM 22810 = equals 18 credits
If student gets POL 13000, PSY 12000, COM 11400, MA 16010, GER 10100, and ENTM 22810 = equals 20 credits

Once again, if the advisor does NOT want to override the maximum credit of 18, the advisor does not have to approve the override.
