Course Time Limit

Because of constantly changing technologies, technical courses cannot be over five years old. Some program majors may have a shorter time limit for technical courses. 

Students wishing to challenge the five-year time limit must first meet with their advisor. If agreement is reached, the advisor will complete a Substitution of Required Course Form to be approved by the Dean of Faculty. If no agreement is reached, the student may appeal the decision through the MSC Southeast Grievance procedure by contacting Student Services. 

Liberal Arts & Sciences courses have no time limit for counting towards program major requirements.
