Personal Interest Credit

In order to encourage students to explore subject matter outside their program of study and to promote interdisciplinary study, all upper-year Arts and Science students will be permitted to designate up to 6.0 units of degree-credit courses for pass/fail grading, thereby minimizing any risk to the students’ GPA.  Such courses designated for pass/fail grading will be referred to as Personal Interest Credits (PICs).

NOTE:  Some graduate programs and professional schools may not accept a PIC pass/fail grade.  Be sure to consult with the graduate program and/or schools that you may be applying to after your undergraduate degree.
