DARS Exceptions – CS

The CS exception is no longer needed.

The CS exception, not available on EARS, was previously used for two purposes:

  1. Low Grade – To accept a course whose grade is below your department’s minimum, please now use the more appropriate RR exception, available on the SRU370 screen of the SDB.
  2. Areas of Knowledge – To allow special topics and ancient courses to apply, you may:
    1. use an RU exception on the SDB (SRF370); or
    2. select, on EARS, “Allow a course to count toward a major requirement” (even though this isn’t a major requirement).
  3. Diversity – You should only make this exception for courses within your own college. Courses outside of your college must be petitioned.

Reminder: Independent study, fieldwork and research courses must be reviewed and approved by the College offering the student’s major; for the College of Arts & Sciences, please send petitions to the Dean’s representative in Undergraduate Advising at the Gateway Center.
