Waiver of a Program Requirement

An advisor/program director has the authority to waive a program requirement only if the proposed waiver is not in violation of any pertinent university regulation, procedure, or policy. Circumstances under which a course might be waived include:

  1. The student has already met the required course objectives through some experience which was not in the form of a transferable course;
  2. The student has not met the objectives of the course, but the advisor/program director determines that the student would derive greater benefit from a different course.

If a program requirement is waived, the minimum number of hours required for the program is unaffected.

A separate policy exists for students entering the Au.D. with a master's degree in Audiology and significant, relevant professional experience. See the Au.D. program description for details.
