Under certain circumstances, a student is allowed to deviate from a prescribed curriculum and still meet graduation requirements. A student who wishes to waive a required course may process a recommendation for catalog exception.
Students are advised to discuss the proposed exception with their academic adviser. If the adviser and the area dean approve the exception, the student is responsible for securing a second dean’s signature if the course is in an area other than the major.
All approvals necessary for a catalog exception must be completed PRIOR to the term the required course or replacement course is offered.
Incomplete applications for graduation will remain in the Admissions and Records Office for a period of one year from the last term of attendance or one year from the date of application (for those students no longer in attendance at the time of application). After that time, your application will be destroyed and you will need to re-apply for graduation.
