*Course may not be used to meet both core and concentration requirements.

**Refer to the CPLN concentration details in the Penn Catalog and/or the MCP program website for information about which and how many concentration courses are needed. Note: for the 2021-2022 Academic Year, the MCP program website supercedes the Penn Catalog if any details between the two sources do not align. For this reason, please be sure to reference the MCP program page.

1. 15 CPLN course units are required for the MCP degree under the PAB accreditation.
2. Due to the special scheduling required for HSPV dual-degree students, in which there is an academic year that requires 5.5 CUs in one semester and 4.5 CUs in the other semester, no additional tuition charges are assessed for the 10 academic year CUs needed in this situation. However, students who choose to take more than 10 CUs will be subject to Weitzman’s regular overload tuition policies.
