Specific degree requirements may be modified with permission and approval from the department chair and/or dean’s office, upon petition by the student and presentation of a compelling case. Any approved exemptions, waivers, or course substitutions need to be submitted via the Course Substitution webform (see here for assistance) so that the modification will be reflected in the student’s degree audit. Courses can be revised in future cycles to include or remove University or college-level designations (Breadth, Multicultural, Capstone, etc.). These courses are not applicable for exceptions or substitutions if taken when it did not have a designation and was revised to include the designation.

Exemption

A student may request to be excused from a course requirement, receiving no credit for the course and no reduction in the total number of credits required for the degree.

Waiver

A student may request to be excused from a course requirement, thereby reducing the total number of credits required for the degree by the amount of credit for the course requirement being waived.

Substitution/Course Examination

A student may request permission to substitute one course for another with no reduction in the total number of credits required for the degree.
