The courses in your study plans and the registration prerequisites for each course ensure that you’ll have the preparation for success.
Occasionally, you might seek to substitute a course or waive the prerequisite requirements of a course. In this case, you should first discuss your situation with you advisor. If your advisor recommends a petition, you may file one through the following process:
Obtain support from the course instructor (for prerequisite waivers)
Gather needed documentation, such as syllabi
Fill out this online form, upload needed documentation, and submit the form
The form will be reviewed and a decision will be made rapidly, normally within two weeks from the date of submission. Please note that an instructor’s support would not automatically result in the approval of a petition.
