Information on Electives

In addition to specific curriculum requirements, students need free electives to reach the 120 credits required for graduation. Most UVM courses can be used for elective credit. There are some courses that are not permitted.

Basic policies

  • You will not earn credit for courses that are assumed prerequisite knowledge for a course already completed. For example, you will not receive credit for FREN 001 after FREN 002.

  • Math has very specific policies on course sequencing and credit. For example, you cannot receive credit for MATH 021 after MATH 019 unless you also take MATH 022. If you take math courses out of the normal sequence refer to the catalogue or check with student services.

  • You will not earn credit for a course that substantially duplicates material in courses offered in Business Administration or in other previously completed courses.
    • You will not receive credit for both CS 014 and BSAD 142.
    • You will not receive credit for both EC 170 and STAT 141.
    • You can only earn credit for one PHIL 010 course.
    • Credit cannot be received for CS 042.

  • PEAC credits cannot be used towards the 120 credits required for graduation. Please note: this policy may vary among the academic units. This applies to courses, intramural, club, and division 1 sports.
