Course Substitutions and Course Equivalents

Course substitutions are when a student takes a course either at a community college or other institution and would like to use that course instead of a required Health Sciences course. Students may request a substitution for elective courses in Public Health. Substitutions are not permitted for core courses or required concentration courses.

Any course substitutions must be discussed in advance with your Faculty Advisor. The student will be asked to provide justification for the substitution and the substitution should specifically relate to the student’s goals and objectives towards their Public Health Major.

Course equivalents are when a student takes a course at another institution and believes the course may be the same or equivalent to a Public Health course. If you would like to have a course evaluated for equivalency, please let the Major advisors in the College of Science SSC know.
