212 - Course Substitution Policy

Students are permitted to request that a particular course be substituted for  a course that is equivalent in both content and rigor. Approval of the request is handled on a case-by-case basis and requires the recommendations of the Academic Advisor and approval through the Academic Affairs Office. No reduction of program length is allowed. Students must request approval of the substitution by submitting a Substitution of Required Course form at least one week prior to registration for the course. See the Course Substitution Policy Procedures for more details.

  1. The student will work with her/his academic advisor to complete the "Substitution of Required Course" which is available from Student Affairs office.
  2. Both the student and the academic advisor will sign and date the form and submit it to the Academic Affairs Office for approval.
  3. Academic Affairs will determine approval or not within five (5) days of receipt. If approved, the form will be forwarded to the Registrar's Office. The course substitution will be entered in the student’s Degree Audit Report (DARS). A copy along with the updated DARS report will be mailed to the student. If not approved, the form will be returned to the academic advisor with an explanation.
