Some UW–Madison classes are set up with a variable number of credits. If you are enrolled in such a variable-credit class, you may be able to change the number of credits you’ll earn for that class.
If the number of credits you earn for the class is connected with specific work assignments or participation, it’s a good idea to talk with your instructor about your desired change, even if you aren’t required to get instructor permission.
Deadlines for changing variable credits
You can make changes to variable credits on your own in Student Center, up to 11:59 pm on a certain deadline. After the deadline you will use a Course Change Request form to request instructor permission and approval of your academic dean.
