Nominations and Petitions

Effective September 1, 2020

The Program Directorate is open to requests to allow courses that are not currently listed as options for fulfilling a major requirement. Such requests fall into two broad categories:

  • Course Nominations: Courses that one wishes to nominate as appropriate to be listed for all students as fulfilling a requirement. These courses are considered and approved for all Symbolic Systems students.
  • Replacement Petitions: Course replacements that are specific to one student's situation. Replacement petitions are considered and approved on an individual basis, considering the circumstances present in each case. The fact that a course replacement has been approved for one student does not imply that it will be approved for other students.
