Default USCE Elective Takes Credit

I'm from Indonesia and in the final year of my medical school. In the electives application there is a point that asks
" Is the student approved to take this elective FOR CREDIT?"

Can I still apply for the electives if my school do not take the elective for credits ? Just to make sure, credits mean it is in my school curriculum, right?

Thank you

Hi, yeah you may apply but certain Universities would not accept your application due to that. May I know which specific uni you are talking about to help you better?

CWRU requires the answer to be "Yes" for credit

CWRU & MSKCC do not accept students who don't get academic crdit for their rotation/clerkship/elective.

They will only review your application if the answer to the question "The student is approved to do electives for academic credit" is "YES"

You can directly mail them and ask about the same cause I'm not pretty sure about UAB.
They usually have their visiting student contact email listed on the website.
