Course Substitutions and Exemptions

  • Students are required to fulfill all program requirements. In exceptional cases, such as when a student is in their final term and the course they require 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 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. Completion of the request for Course Substitution/Exemption form must be completed by the student and approved by the Coordinator, Associate Dean, Dean and Vice President for Academic Affairs before being submitted to the registrar’s office for processing.
