Course Exceptions (Course Substitution/Directive)

A course substitution/directive enables students formally registered in a certificate program to substitute or direct a Ryerson course which is not normally part of the regular certificate curriculum for a course that is listed as a program requirement. The substitute course must be authorized prior to enrolment in the course and must be of equal value and be at the same level. Program director and coordinator approval is required. Decisions are not valid until authorized by the Curriculum Advising office.

Further information and applications for course substitutions/directives are available at the Curriculum Advising website.
