THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Interdisciplinary Studies

CREDIT CROSSOVER: Although Interdisciplinary Studies (IDC4U) courses focus on different subject matter, the IDC4U course code can only count as one credit on a student’s transcript, even if multiple IDC4U courses are taken. For example, a student that has completed IDC4U – Artificial Intelligence and IDC4U – The Elite Athlete will only earn one credit in total on their final transcript. Each IDC4U course (along with the final grade) will show, however, a credit value of zero will be applied to the second IDC4U course. This also applies to students using IDC4U as one of their top six marks when applying to university; one only IDC4U course may be used as an achieved credit out of the six.
