Student request forms
You can request to waive a prerequisite course when you are confident that your prior knowledge, academic or experiential, matches the content of a course. You waive a course at your own risk: instructors will not cover pre-requisite concepts in the course, nor can you expect them to.
Criteria for course waivers:
- Course waivers may be requested for pre-requisite courses to CCE programs.
- Course waivers may not be requested for language courses.
- Waived courses will not appear on student transcripts.
- In order to be granted a certificate or diploma, a student must make a formal request to replace the course and be pre-approved by CCE.
- Decisions based on course waivers are final.
Requests for waiver from prerequisite courses must be made in writing to Concordia Continuing Education (CCE). Students must submit a Course Waiver Form with appropriate proof of experience in order to be considered for a course waiver.
