Course Substitutions and Exemptions

  • Students are required to fulfill all program requirements. In exceptional cases, such as when a student is in his/her final term and the course he/she requires has not been scheduled, the student may be permitted to substitute another appropriate course that produces similar competencies and involves similar areas of knowledge. A completed Course Substitution Form must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office after it is approved by the Coordinator, Associate Dean, Dean and Vice President for Academic Affairs. The code SB appears on the student’s record.
    A student may be granted an exemption from a  required course or from a program requirement only when the Department offering the course or program has identified another course, credential, or other experience as meeting the stated requirement. Official documentation from the Associate Deans and the course or Program Coordinator is required.
