Alternatives To Degree & Certificate Requirements Policy
Students have the right to petition for the following:
- waiver of comprehensive degree and/or certificate requirements
- substitution of course work to meet the General Education require- ments
- substitution of course work to meet degree and/or certificate requirements
- awarding of non-traditional credit
Substitution of course work to meet General Education requirements or waivers of comprehensive degree and/or certificate requirements shall be approved/disapproved by the Dean of Academic Services or a designee.
For substitutions of course work to meet degree and/or certificate require- ments, and/or for awarding of non-traditional credit, the administrative support person or campus designee shall approve/disapprove petitions in accordance with guidelines established by the SACC to which the course belongs.
No student can graduate for less than the required number of credits. Credit can be given for equal course work, but it cannot be waived entirely.
