Course Waivers

Course waivers are defined as classes that a student may be exempted from taking. These waived courses are classified as core courses or required electives for certificates.  Waived course credits do not apply towards degree completion. Replacement course(s) will have to be taken in lieu of the waived course(s).

Course waivers require filling out the official “Petition for Course Waiver form” which must be completed by the student and signed by the Lead Instructor.  Detailed instructions are available on the form.
