NOTE: Students may need to fill out a course waiver/request form with instructor consent to register in some of our courses. For Special Topics courses (section 01) where the graduate coordinator is listed as Instructor: please be advised that students will need to identify a faculty advisor who will work with them on a one-on-one basis to complete the course BEFORE the form is signed by the graduate coordinator. When submitting the form for signature, please state the name of faculty advisor you have identified. All forms need to be complete, filled out in full and in one .pdf file to be accepted. This includes collecting the signature from instructors that are not the Graduate Coordinator. Students should send completed forms to Jen LaPorte, Graduate Secretary <firstname.lastname@example.org>; she will ensure that the forms are signed and returned to students in a timely manner.
