Requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the start date for the class. A syllabus of the course you are requesting is required.

If this course is approved, you must meet with your Faculty Advisor to confirm how this course will apply toward your degree. Course approval does not guarantee that it will meet degree requirements. Department Chair approval also is required if you intend for the course to meet a major or minor requirement.

Please Note: Courses elsewhere that are a part of the GEP or Major course requirements must be taken at SJU unless the course is not being offered that term and is necessary for a student to maintain normal academic progress or the proper sequence of courses in his or her major field of study
