Under unusual circumstances, a student may request that a course substitution be approved for a particular core or program requirement.

The student must initiate the request, indicating the course to be substituted for the requirement and detailing how the replacement course meets the objectives of the original requirement. Faculty who normally teach the required course will have input into the decision, as will the student’s faculty advisor.

If the substitution is for a major or minor requirement, faculty in the Division housing the program in question will vote to grant or deny the substitution.

If the substitution is for a Core requirement, the faculty in the Division which houses the course for which the student is seeking the substitution will recommend approval or denial.  For core requirements, the additional approval of the Program Review and Evaluation Committee is also required.
