Would a school allow a student to, by choice, receive less credits for a course?

Not usually. Course credits are an indicator of the amount of work required for that course. Reducing credits would necessitate reducing expectations and altering the course, which can be a burden on the faculty member or course supervisor. Even if a student expects to do the full amount of work for less credit (there would be very few reasons for this to occur), faculty would be very wary of allowing this. Finally, it's just not an easy thing to do - it would involve a lot of paperwork and a lot of signatures at my school.
