Course Waivers If you have a significant academic background in business, you may qualify for a course waiver, which can reduce the number of credits you need to earn a graduate business degree. Course waivers are granted for certain core and required courses only and may be granted when ALL of the following criteria are met:
- You have obtained a bachelor’s degree from an AACSB-accredited institution within the past five years.
- You have successfully completed at least six credits of undergraduate coursework in the related discipline with a grade of “B” or better in each course.
- Except as noted below, at least three of the above credits are in a course at the intermediate level.
All course waivers are subject to individual review and require the submission of syllabi for all non-UD courses. Meeting the above guidelines does not guarantee that a course waiver will be granted.
