Waiver Examinations

A student may meet an academic requirement such as general education or a course prerequisite by passing a waiver examination. Successful completion of the examination waives

the curricular requirement but does not result in credit earned. Thus, it does not reduce the total number of semester credit hours required for a degree, but it will increase the available number of elective hours. The results of a waiver exam are recorded on the student’s degree audit but not on the permanent record or transcript. Students must be currently enrolled to be eligible to submit a request for the preparation of a waiver examination. Forms for this purpose are available from the Registrar. There is an examination preparation fee but no recording fee.
