Hello respected teachers,

What does credits mean in the following sentence?

Some of my studies I just have to take for the credits and that gets a little tedious sometimes.



I am looking forward to your answers.

The sentence could be structured a little bit better, but, to answer your question...
In order to graduate college, a student must earn a certain number of credits. Each course has an assigned number of credits earned, upon successful completion. The credits earned must be distributed across various areas of study, such as mathematics, history, economics, etc., in addition to the student's selected area of study. Sometimes, students will find themselves needing to earn a few more credits in a certain area that is not of particular interest to them, hence they say they need the course "for credits only".
