Course Petition

Students accepted in the CDS Program may petition for approval of courses not listed for CDS certificate credit. Students may petition courses either before or after they actually take the course. 

Students petitions should include: 

  • Statement on how the course fits within the CDS Program philosophy and field of study, and why it is particularly relevant to the student's academic curriculum and/or career preparation
  • Copy of the course description, syllabus, reading list and course requirements
  • Copies of relevant papers and other evaluated work, if the course has already been completed
