Exemption from Courses

A student may be exempted from a course only with the approval of the instructor of record.  If the instructor finds that the student has sufficient educational background and successfully passes a test administered by the instructor, the student may be exempted from the course.  If the student is granted an exemption, the course instructor must notify the Registrar and student in writing by the end of the third week of the beginning of the course.  The student is required to attend the course until receiving written notification of an exemption.  An exemption from a course does not entail a change in tuition.
