Major Standing Students

You should continue to take your classes that have been approved on your Plan of Study. You may find your Plan of Study on your Progress to Degree via SAIL.

Each semester, set up an appointment to meet with your adviser to discuss course planning, registration and overall student experience.

If you need to change a course in your Plan of Study, please fill out the Course Change Form.

Course Substitution

When you are requesting to change one course to another course that has the SAME discipline (i.e. PS3010 to substitute for PS3500) please complete the course change form and choose course substitution.

NOTE: The BIS department staff will review your request and notify you if this course substitution has been approved, denied or if it needs to be modified for the BIS degree requirements.

Petition of Exception

When you are requesting to change one course to another course that has a DIFFERENT discipline (i.e. PS3001 to substitute for COM3030). Use the course change form form and click the Petition of Exception button at the top of the form. 

The Petition of Exception form is used to request any changes that fall outside of a course change such as change in credits, removal of a course, or waiver of a program/university policy.

NOTE: The BIS department staff will process your request and make sure that it comes before the Faculty Review committee. You will be notified if this course substitution has been approved, denied or if it needs to be modified for the BIS degree.

Graduation

The semester before you intend to graduate, be sure to Apply to Graduate.
