Course Substitution/Waiver

Substitution Form

Waiver Form

Students are expected to complete all of their general education, minor, major, and program requirements as spelled out in the academic handbook.  As per university policy, students are the stewards of their education and schedules.  They thus should work closely with their advisors throughout their time on campus in order to ensure that they fulfill all of their requirements for graduation.  

Submit the completed form to the Registrar. Forms are also available in the Registrar's Office.
