Extended Education Credits

Extended Education Credit courses (whose Subject Code begins with "X") are offered for semester units of undergraduate degree credit. These courses are designed to meet individual’s personal and professional learning and training needs. Undergraduate students may take these courses to earn elective units that add to their total unit count required for completion of their academic degree. These units, however, do not count toward a student's overall university grade point average or meet major requirements. Students are encouraged to check with their academic department in regard to the total number of extension units counted toward the degree. (The average number of units is eight but varies depending on the academic department.) Courses are offered both on campus and online.
