Engineering General Education Exception Form

Please note, this form is for students who are either either pre- or full major status in the College of Engineering. Students who are not a part of COE, should contact their major advisor or the Academic Advising Center.

To fill out the general education exceptions form, you will need to do the following:

  3. Select the General Education code that matches the requirement you want this course to satisfy.
  4. Provide a concise (1-2 paragraph) description of the course.
  5. Attach a concise, but compelling argument that includes the following:
    1. An explanation of how the appealed course fulfills the criteria for the requirement.
    2. U of U courses only: an explanation, in specific terms, of how your circumstances uniquely qualify you for this exception to the University’s policy.
  6. Attach the course syllabus.
  7. Attach your Degree Audit Report. Save and submit in PDF or other digital format.
  8. If you are a second Bachelor’s degree student, please upload an unofficial or official transcript from the transfer institution which shows course and grade.
