2020-2021 Academic Catalog

Special Offerings


On occasion, a student, in consultation with the advisor, identifies a need to take a course listed in the catalog at a time other than its regularly scheduled offering. Since this action may place a substantial burden on the University faculty, the institution seeks to keep special offerings at a minimum and to limit them to students who have achieved junior or senior standing with course obligations needed to fulfill graduation requirements. The “Special Offering” form is available in the Registrar’s Office. The student is responsible for completing the student, advisor and course information portions of the form, gathering the signatures of the Dean, Department Chair and Instructor, and submitting the form with a graduation plan to the Registrar’s Office. The review will assess the student’s past, current and future schedule, the student’s drop/add history, the number of special offerings taken in the past, the number of offerings to which the proposed instructor is already committed and when the course will be offered next. Completed special offering requests must be submitted by the end of the semester prior to the special offering term. Credit for unapproved work will not be given.
