|Subject:||Degree Plans — Course Substitutions/Equivalency|
In order to maintain program integrity and academic credibility, students must closely follow the course requirements established by the Curriculum and Advisory Committees and approved by the District and the Texas Educational Coordinating Board.
“Convenience” and/or “having to graduate now” are not acceptable reasons for approving requests for substitutions.
If required courses are readily available at Brookhaven College or within the District, or if no true equivalent exists within the student’s previous course work, then course(s) will not be substituted (see “Procedures”). However, factors which might be beyond the control of the student and which might require consideration for course substitution are evaluated and all options considered.
The following definitions and procedures apply when a course substitution or course equivalency has been requested.
