5. Upper Level Electives

(Note that as of Fall 2016 all upper level electives have 400-level numbers. Credit will still be given for upper level electives taken prior to Fall 2016 that had a 300-level number. Several upper level electives that were previously 400-level have also been given new, also 400-level, numbers. In either case, credit will only be given for either the course with the pre-Fall 2016 number or the course with the new number. Specifics are noted for each course individually whose number has changed. A full concordance of all courses whose numbers have changed, with the old and new number, is available here .)
