Course Waiver Policy for Business Master's Students

Course waivers are allowed for some programs/courses, which are listed below. All other core course requirements follow a strict no-waiver policy. If a student is granted a course waiver, that course must be replaced with an elective course of equal or greater credit hours. Prerequisite requirements for electives must still be met before registering for those courses. Course waivers do not diminish the number of credits required for graduation. If a waiver is granted, students should seek guidance regarding replacement courses from an academic advisor.
