Discovery Credit Policy

Effective Fall 2018, Western is introducing a new Discovery Credit policy.  To help DAN students and potential DAN students understand how this policy will affect them, we have developed some policies surrounding the Discovery Credit application. 

  1. Modular MOS courses are not eligible for Discovery Credit status. 
    All of your modular courses must be taken as graded classes, including courses that are not the MOS subject but are specifically listed in the modular requirements (ie: Geography 2143A/B, Psychology 2820E).
     
  2. If MOS courses are taken for Discovery Credit and the student enters a BMOS degree, the student will be required to repeat those MOS courses for graded credit. 

  3. Discovery Credits cannot be used towards scholarship or award consideration (with emphasis on awards requiring a grade in a specific course). 

  4. Where possible, Discovery Credits should be used for elective options only.
