Default Elective for credit or not for credit !!

Hello everyone !!!

I am an IMG, in midst of my application for electives and I happened to encounter this term 'Student is approved to take this elective for credit or not for credit ', and this thing is to be mentioned in the letter obtained from the dean ! What exactly does this phrase mean ???

The electives arent part of of the MedSchool Curriculum and I am a IMG !!!

Thank You !!
