9 Waiver of Faculty Regulations

Any student whose request for waiver of Faculty regulations has been denied has the right to appeal. For further information refer to UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS - General Academic Regulations (Undergraduate) - Appeal of Decisions.

  1. The Faculty reserves the right in special circumstances to modify, alter, or waive any Faculty regulation in its application to individual students where merit and equity so warrant in the judgment of the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the Faculty.

  2. All requests for a waiver of a Faculty regulation must be submitted in writing to the Chair of the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the Faculty for consideration by the committee. Medical and/or other documentation to substantiate the request must be provided.

  3. Any waiver granted does not reduce the total number of credit hours required for the degree.

  4. Transfer credit applications for courses designated by NURS in lieu of courses previously completed are normally not accepted. Applications are reviewed on an individual basis, and only if the grade achieved in the completed course is 65% or higher.
