           b. To incentivize students to take challenging courses by lowering the burden on grades
           c. To promote interdisciplinary exchanges and to foster convergent observational and thinking skills by creating an   mosphere   in which students in humanities, social studies, science and engineering fields can freely take courses offered by  other departments without putting a burden on their grades

2.         Allowable range for S/U evaluation selection
