Exceptions / Waivers / Petitions Process

Degree Audit in the Office of the Registrar is available to help you in the following areas regarding a student degree audit report:

  • Exceptions are done for students who are able to alter the program requirements from approved curriculum requirements in that catalog year. All exceptions are done by the Degree Audit unit and processed within 24 to 48 hours after the approved exception is received.
  • Exceptions within department requirements do not need committee approval and can be sent to Degree Audit through MyUNLV Comments via Advising Summary Page.
  • Exceptions within General Education requirements must be petitioned through the General Education Committee and be approved before those exceptions will take place.
