Please note that JanTerm courses are NOT eligible for CF credit. The University Council on General Education, the faculty body that governs the GEC, has determined that “Cultural Formations” (CF) courses are not appropriate to offer during the intensive Jan Term program (only 8 class days) given their heavy reading and writing requirements.
