Waiver Information

Full time students interested in waiving DECS 431, DECS 433, DECS 434, MECN 430 and OPNS 430 must request waiver consideration by the end of the summer pre-term.

Some courses may be waived based on student transcripts and previous course work. In these cases students should collect academic transcripts and a waiver form from the registrar's office. Contact the professor listed below and let them know which of your past course work covers related material. Provide a course syllabus with your waiver request. Submit transcripts, waiver form, and syllabus to the respective professor.

In other cases, the course waiver is granted only by passing the waiver exam.
