P/D/F policy: Students may use no more than one course taken on a Pass/D/Fail basis to satisfy program requirements. This is not permitted to use for the course in Lieu of your thesis. The exception is that any number of courses taken on a Pass/D/Fail basis in the Spring or Fall of 2020 may be used to satisfy program requirement. So basically, any classes taken during the Spring and Fall of 2020 will not count towards the one course that is normally allowed.
Concentrators in departments with computer-related concentrations: Students in these departments who are doing a computer-related concentration are not eligible for PAC. Students in these departments who are not in a computer-related concentration are eligible. For example, ELE majors who want to receive the PAC certificate must concentrate in a noncomputational area of ELE (such as circuit design or photonics). If you are doing Computer systems, Data and Information, and Security and Privacy, you are not qualified for the Certificate.
Courses used to satisfy departmental requirements: No courses used for a departmental concentration requirement may satisfy PAC requirements. For example, ELE students may not use ELE 206/COS 306 to satisfy PAC requirements.
