All course work used for waiver from a particular course must have been taken within the past seven (7) years. The student must have received a grade of “C” or better in each course applied towards a waiver.

The Department Chair has the responsibility for ensuring that the student has the appropriate prior course work and knowledge as set forth in this policy before approving the waiver.
