Core Course Exemptions

Students may have completed graduate courses that they feel are equivalent to one or more core courses. In order to waive a core course requirement, a student must write the program director requesting an exemption. This request will be reviewed by the student's Doctoral Program Advisory Committee who may recommend to the program director that the exemption be granted. The request should include the following:

1. Title of the course from which exemption is requested.

2. Title, catalogues description and syllabus (with readings assigned) for the course which is suggested as the substitute.

3. Any papers or projects written for the course. (Optional, but useful material.)

No credit for exempted courses will be counted toward the total hours required for the Ph.D.
