Managing Credits

Sona allows you to manage your credit and account information and redistribute credit across your courses if you so desire.  

  • Sona will allow you to add a class to your account profile, if you add that course later in the quarter. 
  • Sona is not connected to Tritonlink and will not allow you to drop a class from your Sona account. Because of this, if you drop a class Sona will misreport your total participation requirement (i.e., it will still include the participation requirement for the class you've now dropped).
  • Sona will let you redirect credit you'd assigned to the dropped class to another course in which you remain enrolled.

For instance, you have earned 6 credits and have allocated 2 credits to PSYC 60 and 4 credits to PSYC 101. Later you realize you need 3 credits for PSYC 60.  You can go into your account and re-allocate your credit so that you have 3 towards PSYC 60 and 3 towards PSYC 101 to better satisfy your course Sona requirements.  Note: it is the student's responsibility to assign their Sona credits correctly by the deadline.

Note: You may not split a credit between two courses, for example by assigning 1 credit of a 2-credit study to one course, and the other credit from that study to another course.
