Co-curricular courses are courses designed to enhance student personal development, enrich the student's educational experience and/or facilitate involvement in University life. Co-curricular courses are graded CR/NC. No more than 15 units of co-curricular course work may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree.

Co-curricular courses include the following categories of courses:

  1. Elective courses that provide students an opportunity to practice in a field related to their major (e.g., cooperative education, field tours, workshops, tutoring, field work and internships); *
  2. Courses that allow students to apply an individual talent or skill as a participant in intercollegiate competition or other extracurricular activities and events organized by the University;
  3. Orientation Courses (e.g., introduction to college studies, academic strategies and study skills, career orientation);
  4. Courses that promote student involvement in University governance and service (e.g., participation in student government, peer advising, residence hall advisor training).
  5. Co-curricular courses are only eligible to receive CR/NC.

* Note: Field work and internships that are required in a major or minor program are not subsumed in this category.
