Course Waiver/Substitution

When it can be determined that a student has successfully completed a course at Lesley or at another accredited institution which is substantially the same as a required course in one of the degree programs offered in the college, a waiver or substitution may be granted. Applications for course waiver/substitution must be approved and signed by the appropriate division director before submission to the Registrar. Approval of the course waiver/substitution does not reduce the total number of credits required for the awarding of the degree, but allows the student, in consultation with an advisor, to select another approved course for the same number of credits, which may then be taken in lieu of the waived or substituted course.
