What kind of credit is awarded a Freshman Seminar?

The Faculty of Arts and Sciences has a credit system whereby a one-semester course is worth four credits. Freshman Seminars count as one-semester course and are taken as part of a full semester’s course of study. All seminars count towards non-letter-grade credit. If you successfully petition a department to receive concentration credit for a freshman seminar (see below), then the seminar would count for letter-grade credit.
