Can I earn selective credit for extramural experiences in the summer and break?

No, students may not pursue more than (2 credits) of selectives in a semester, and these must be completed during selective weeks with the exception of NCSU faculty sponsored international trips and Professional Meetings. If a student completes an international extramural experience in the summer (with prior approvals, etc), he or she can apply for elective credit but would need to pay summer tuition. If the international experience occurs over fall, winter, or spring break (with prior approvals, etc.), he or she can apply for elective credit for the current semester or the semester immediately following the experience depending on the timing of the experience. The student must still complete two selective credits in that semester. “Banking” of selective credit is not allowed.
