NOTE:  In some instancess, the department may waive a student out of a course required for the B.S degree if there is evidence of prior coursework that meets the UW content requirement. Please note that students who are waived out of degree program requirements due to prior coursework may end up enrolling in as few as one or two courses in some quarter(s), because of the fixed nature of the program. In addition, students with course waivers may not obtain full time status (12 credits) in some quarters, which can impact financial aid.
