COHORT POLICIES
Students in the Cohort Program may waive up to two courses.  Students who waive courses may NOT take core courses out of order.

Students who waive a course will replace that course with an elective (assuming they have satisfied the prerequisites) OR take a reduced load for the semester in which the waived course is scheduled.

The maximum amount of time a student has to complete the degree is 6 years.
