COURSE SUBSTITUTIONS
The student may request a program substitution through the academic program
advisor when:
courses better meet the need of the student’s educational objectives
a required course is not scheduled during the student’s last term
before graduation
the student has a documented disability which precludes them from
successfully completing required coursework
In the first two instances above, course substitutions require a written request

director, dean, and Provost for approval. In the case of disability, a written request
by the student is submitted to the Office for Students with Disabilities, which is
reviewed by the Substitution Committee.
