Issue name: Graduate program of studies.

Issue resolution status: Resolved - In Progress.

Due date: Ongoing.

Issue description:

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.


Planned solution:

Work with the graduate programs to better systematize the programs and utilize wildcards and other approaches to limit the number of exceptions and substitutions.
