Due date: Ongoing.
There is a high volume of graduate student requests for exceptions and substitutions. Typically there is a constant level of 600 to 700 active requests. This high volume of exceptions is due to the flexibility of the curriculum of many graduate programs.
This volume of exceptions has a negative effect on graduate student graduation checkout and the graduate assistantship process due to the requirement of 9 credit hours applying to their program of study.
Work with the graduate programs to better systematize the programs and utilize wildcards and other approaches to limit the number of exceptions and substitutions.
