Instructions for Requesting Approval of Outside Course

  • Complete the Request for Outside Courses form, which can obtained in person from the Office of the Registrar or downloaded here.

  • The form must be approved by the Office of the Registrar and the Office of the Dean before you register for the course.  

  • If a course is not on the pre-approved list below, then you may contact the designated faculty in that department for approval. Contact the designated faculty with the following information: name of the school, course title, course code, dates/length of the summer session, course description, summer course syllabus, if it is being taught online or in person. NOTE: Pre-approved courses on the list that were previously delivered in person that will now be delivered online still need approval.
