Course Substitution/Waiver

Reasonable academic modification of requirements may be necessary to avoid discrimination based on disabilities. SCC will make reasonable modifications to its academic requirements, if necessary, to comply with legal requirements, ensuring that such requirements do not discriminate or have the effect of discriminating on the basis of a student’s known and adequately documented disability. The college is not obligated to grant a substitution/waiver when the institution can determine and demonstrate that the course is essential to the program(s)/degree(s) that student is pursing, related to licensing requirements or fundamentally alter the nature of the services, programs or activities.

To request a substitution/waiver based on disability, a case must be open with Accessibility Services (see requesting services). The student needs to complete the Petition for Academic Program Exceptions/Waivers form (located in Enrollment Services) and schedule an appointment with Accessibility Services. Academic Affairs determines course substitutions/waivers after consultation with Accessibility Services and the appropriate academic department.

The student must be cognizant of the possibility that a transfer institution may not accept a course substitution/waiver.
