I am an oos who will be attending Cal Poly and majoring in Electrical Engineering. My major requires 193 credits but I have knocked it down to about 160 with my AP credit. I am a little confused on what Cal Poly means by free electives? Do they count for anything towards my degree or are they just there for the sake of being there? Also is 160 credits in 4 years doable or should I be looking at a 5th year or an additional quarter?
