Degree-seeking students should follow the curriculum pattern for the major academic area they select as it is outlined in the catalog. In special cases,students may be permitted to modify their associate degree program by substituting a course of related subject matter for a required course. To initiate this procedure, students must first have the approval of their advisor. They may then complete a Degree Advisement Worksheet form available in the Office of Records and Graduation Services or in the division office. Substitution for any required course in a degree plan specified in the college catalog requires approval by the dean of the division offering the degree, the Registrar.
