Course Waiver Policy
In rare cases, students who meet certain requirements can be waived out of one or more of the following required MS, ISOM courses: ISM 6128, ISM 6129, ISM 6222, ISM 6223, QMB 6755, QMB 6756, ISM 6215, MAN 6581 and QMB 6358. It is completely up to the discretion of the instructor teaching the course to waive the course; we will NOT consider appeals to any instructor's decision. Students who do obtain a waiver must realize that they may be required to make up the credit hours by taking a graduate business elective.
To obtain a waiver for one or more courses, you must:
- Review the syllabus for the course/s you are seeking to waive.
- No later than one week prior to the start of the course, make an appointment with the instructor for the course/s for which you are seeking a waiver.
- Fill out the Course Waiver Petition. During your appointment, the instructor will screen you for eligibility for a waiver. Be prepared to provide a syllabus for an equivalent academic course you've taken (professional certifications, professional coursework and work experience cannot be considered). The instructor has complete discretion about the assessment tool used to determine knowledge of the topic.
- If the waiver is approved, it must be filed (with all required signatures) with the Director of Student Services prior to the start of the course. Otherwise, your waiver will automatically be denied.
