The Best Part? It’s Impossible to Fail!

You are only enrolled for the credit upon successful completion of the course. There is no penalty on your academic record for non-completion. It is important to know that this course is not associated with financial aid and is non-weight bearing for full-time eligibility. This course is completely optional for students, but is a highly encouraged resource for students to engage with.

The only time this course can be completed by students is if they are in their current first-semester at Boise State. If a student does not complete the course during their first semester, it will not be available for completion the following semester or after the first 10-week deadline.
