How VIP Credits Count

How VIP Credits Count

The VIP program is multidisciplinary by nature, attracting students from schools and departments across campus. VIP credits typically count as free electives or technical electives. Departments with consistent student enrollment in VIP have established policies on how these credits count in their degree programs.  VIP can also be used in Senior Design and Junior Design in some majors, but students must take a specific number of credits their junior and senior years.

Students: If your program of study is not listed, check with your advising office to find out how the credits would count toward your degree.

Faculty and Staff: The policies below are based on information provided to VIP by academic units. If you have updates or corrections, please contact the VIP Team.
