In degree requirements, you can choose to waive, substitute, or exempt specific requirements for students.
By waiving a requirement for a student, you indicate that the program considers the requirement complete and count the credits.
When you select to waive a requirement, you will see any courses already fulfilling the requirement and the number of credits earned to help you determine whether to waive the requirement and how many credits to waive.
By substituting a requirement, you can replace the credits needed with credits already earned from another course.
By exempting a student from a requirement, you indicate that the student does not have to complete the requirement but does have to make up the credits of the requirement elsewhere.
When you select to exempt a requirement, you will see any courses already fulfilling the requirement and the number of credits earned to help you determine whether to exempt the requirement and how many credits to exempt.
If you exempt credits in a general elective requirement, when you save the exemption, the general elective requirement credits increase. You have to make up the credits you exempted. However, if no requirement is marked general elective, the exempted credits are not added to any requirement.
