Applying for a Core Course Exemption

Students may apply for exemption from SPHG 600, SPHG 711, and/or SPHG 712. Students must demonstrate in the application that they have achieved the learning objectives and competencies covered in the required core course through other coursework completed in the past five years. Examples may include coursework completed at another university, through a different degree program, or not on the list of approved substitutes. In rare circumstances, coursework completed more than five years ago may be considered in combination with demonstration of competencies through professional work experience.

It is important to note that an exemption does not reduce the number of credit hours required for your degree. Rather, receiving an exemption generally provides a student with more flexibility to take electives. Students may explore the possibility of transferring in credits to their degree by talking with their Academic Coordinator. More information regarding transferring course credit is available in the Graduate School Handbook.
