Course Substitution Policy
The Articulation & General Studies program and the legislatively-mandated State Core require both English composition and introductory Math courses since they represent the most basic college-level, degree-oriented content. AUM has reaffirmed these principles in adopting the State Core. In addition, it is the policy of Auburn University Montgomery to comply with all laws and regulations regarding the education of students with disabilities. Over the years, reasonable accommodation has expanded to include program modifications and possible course substitution. The following courses are essential academic requirements: ENGL 1010, ENGL 1020, and one of the following math courses: MATH 1050, MATH 1100, MATH 1150, MATH 1610, MATH 1620, MATH 2630 or MATH 2660. All students will meet these requirements with no substitution.
Rules and Procedures
Curriculum can be adapted in appropriate circumstances. The following rules and procedures define AUM’s approach to this issue.
For students who are not registered with the Center for Disability Services (CDS) or disabled students who choose not to register with CDS, any requests for course substitutions must be made in writing to the department head and dean of the college where the curriculum course is taught (for major requirements only). Any requests for University Core course substitutions must be approved by the Office of the Provost.
A student registered with the Center for Disability Services (CDS) may request a program modification or course substitution.
