Rollback: Shoko, please update the syllabus to reflect that you are not asking for GPAC credit for the course. Right now it says that the course is a GPAC course. Also remove the Humanities attribute as that is no longer necessary. Please also change the name of the file uploaded so that there is no GPAC in it.
