Course Substitution Policies
What is a Course Substitution?
A course substitution is the replacement of a professional core course (previously approved by the SOIS faculty review committee) with a new course approved by a SOIS academic advisor who has deemed it appropriate for that area of professional study.
Policy (undergraduate and graduate):
In the professional core (professional concentrations), SOIS students are allowed up to three substitutions total (with advisor approval) before their plan-of-study must be reviewed again by the undergraduate SOIS faculty review committee or the graduate faculty review committee. Any course substitution must be discussed with the students academic advisor prior to beginning the course. Failure to consult with an advisor could result in a course not counting towards degree requirements.
