Course Waivers

Some courses offered in the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine curriculum can be waived by prior comparable coursework, by waiver examination, or by related work experience. Generally speaking, basic science courses can be waived, systems biology courses and courses involving clinical experience/training cannot be waived.

If a student feels they have prior comparable coursework or related work experience they will be required to provide documentation of said coursework/work experience to the course Instructor of Record to determine if a waiver should be granted. A student may be requested to meet with the course Instructor of Record to discuss previous coursework and/or related work experience.

Students granted a course waiver will still be required to register for the course. Participation in the course will not be required and an automatic Pass grade will be given at the end of the course. Please speak with Registrar Services staff for more information and assistance.
