You are not required to complete ECON X499.5, your requirements to complete the certificate are unchanged (ECON X499.1/2/3/4, and three total elective units.) If you wish to complete ECON X499.5, the 2 units will count toward your 3 unit elective requirement.  You must contact PaCE Support once you have completed the class to request the substitution.
