Exception of Degree Requirements

The college, under special circumstances, may allow an exception for degree requirements. Requests are considered on a case-by-case basis.

As a currently enrolled student, you must work with your academic advisor to request a change in degree requirements within your active program of study.  Exceptions must be approved by the Student, Academic Advisor, Department Chair or Program Manager, Associate VP of NECE or Dean of Academic Affairs, and Provost or VP of the NECE.
 
An approved change in degree requirements will be built into your Academic Requirements Report in CampusConnection.
 
An email notification of approval or denial of the exception will be sent to you and your academic advisor by the Academic Records Office.
 
The process for requesting a change in degree requirements starts with you contacting your academic advisor to initiate the Petition for Exception of Degree Requirements form.
 
Note:  New forms will need to be submitted to the Academic Records Office if there is a change in program, degree or a break in enrollment.
