A PDO student is only allowed to enroll in one or two courses per semester unless they have met the English proficiency requirement for the intended GT degree program. PDO students are not allowed to enroll in more than 3 courses total before being admitted into the GT-Shenzhen Master’s degree program.

Other students: You may use CSE 6040 as elective. Each course earns 3.0 CEUs (continuing education units). The course titles have (NonCredit) in them to emphasize that the enrollees are non-degree students at the moment. The CEUs are “credits” for professional education.
